Speak Up Youth Launch April 2013

 

Speak Up’s Interactive Launch Showcases Youth Voices Through Music, Art, Story-telling and Comedy

 

About 120 students and school counsellors gathered at the Abbotsford school district to experience the power of youth speaking up about mental health and help launch Speak Up.   

This interactive event introduced youth to Speak Up and its safe online community, Speak Up @ mindcheck.ca, and showcased youth with lived experience adding their “voice” through music, art, story-telling and comedy. Students uploaded submissions to the website during the event, thanks to a loan of ipads from the Surrey School District.
