Chapter Leader - Laura Young 

Laura Young is a champion for children’s mental health. 

A mother of three, Laura knows firsthand the challenges parents face when navigating the mental health system. A passionate and compassionate teacher, Laura ensures that all of her students feel safe and welcome in her classroom and in the school.  She knows that learning happens when children’s social-emotional needs are met.


Chapter Leader - Kara Menard

Kara Menard is the mother of two and a Special Education Resource Teacher with the Rainbow District School Board. 

As part of her work, she walks parents through the process of assessment to educational identification. She works diligently with families, supporting them as they access services, read Individual Education Plans, and participate actively in their children’s education.  She is passionate about community building for the mental wellbeing of its members and advocacy for students with special needs.


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.
