What is it, exactly?


Join us again for the 3rd annual United Voices: Immigrant Youth Wellness Summit – the first summit of its kind in Southern Alberta. Youth from all backgrounds are invited to register to take part in a fun day including stories from inspirational immigrant speakers, interactive break-out sessions, and more, while learning how to battle the stigma surrounding mental health.

Why would I do this?


Are you a youth who wants to learn more about mental health? Do you want to learn how to take action against the stigma surrounding mental health? Then you will love United Voices! Learn the skills and gain the confidence to become an advocate for mental health and spark change in your community. Whether you are an immigrant, the child of immigrants, or just want to share your voice, this completely free event will be an afternoon for everyone to come together to end the stigma.
