Do You Mind? Community-led Responses to 2SLGBTQ+ Youth Mental Health

Join us for an online webinar on Thursday, March 25 where CBRC’s National Mental Health Project Coordinator Fowzia Huda shares learnings from the first year of Do You Mind?, a pilot project designed by CBRC to empower gender and sexual minority youth to become mental health-savvy knowledge holders and advocates.


With interventions delivered in three provinces (Halifax, Edmonton, and Vancouver), Do You Mind? empowered 2SLGBTQ+ communities across Canada to identify and address their own communites’ specific mental health needs—from designing effective support strategies for youth grappling with suicidal ideation, to the creation of a mentorship program between community members from different generations, to the publishing of a collaborative Zine that celebrates success in the queer community.

Joining Fowzia in the discussion will be:

  • Holly Abt - Edmonton Community Coordinator
    (representing EMHC, Edmonton partner site)
  • Emily Bailey - Program Manager, Mpowerment/YouthCO

  • Kirk Furlotte - Atlantic Regional Manager, CBRC

Duration: 75 minutes (60 mins presentation and 15 mins Q&A)
