In this video hear from a young person with lived experience and Kim Leifso, RCC as they discuss what self-harm is, why youth self-injure, and other options for healthy coping strategies.

Listen to Rylee McKinlay, Young Adult with lived experience, Terri McKinlay, Parent with lived experience and Carmen Kauffman, Eating Disorders Therapist & Educator with Jessie’s Legacy, share their perspective and knowledge as they talk about the continuum of disordered eating, what to be aware of, the importance of connection, and strategies that help support recovery.

MARCH - A Conversation for Families About Digital Wellbeing & Mental Health
As parents, we struggle with balancing our children’s time spent in the digital world and what we consider the real world.

Join us for a conversation with Dr. Kristy Goodwin, Digital Wellbeing and Productivity Researcher, Speaker, Author and Consultant to learn some practical solutions to our everyday concerns and challenges around our kids’ use of screens and their mental health.
