Annemarie Fleer, Leader for the Owen Sound PCMH Chapter, has a passion for Child and Youth Mental Health. She too has navigated mental health services for her son, and she too understands the  gaps in services for children, youth, and families who need support.

She can directly relate to the challenges families face at home and at school.  She believes families play an important part in the recovery process.

While she identified there are many barriers to accessing mental health services, she truly believes there is hope.  She has been involved in volunteering for Mental Health events in the Community, and she uses her voice to advocate for child and youth mental health services and for families who need support. Working in the Community has given her great insight on how important Mental Health services are in Grey and Bruce.

Family Resources

The Owen Sound PCMH Chapter worked with local artist and creativity coach, Susan Seitz (www.susanseitz.ca), to learn how to discover self-care through art and journaling. Families and community partners worked together to create a collaborative community art piece to represent the youth and families struggling with mental illness. Families also learned how to recognize qualities that we admire in others within ourselves and how to express some of our feelings and emotions using art and words.

Parents for Children's Mental Health believe that children, youth, and their families suffering from mental health challenges deserve our extreme respect and assurance.  We are dedicated to improving the lives of these families.
 

 

WE LINK families to important networks within their communities to ensure they get the care they need and the support of families who can relate and support them.

WE UNDERSTAND the issues around child and youth mental health challenges and the stigma that prevents the work and conversations that need to happen.

WE HELP communities and families access important resources so they can begin their journey of healing.

I just wanted to say how pleased I am at the fact that PCMH is extending it's communication to the web. The increases to the website and the monthly Web Newsletter are helping … Member, Windsor
