The Coronavirus is having a devastating effect on youth mental health. They are experiencing growing feelings of isolation, anxiety, and depression. Atlantic Wellness wants to be there for our youth in their time of need.
Will you please provide an urgent gift of $42 to provide 30 minutes of life-saving mental health therapy to a struggling youth?
One of our therapists spoke to her client, Emma, yesterday. Emma doesn’t have a great relationship with her parents and is struggling because she can’t escape her house right now. She’s sleeping most of the day and is feeling hopeless, lazy, and depressed. She is resorting to self-harm as a coping mechanism. Emma needs your help.
Your gift will allow us to reach out to Emma in her home to calm her fears, remind her of positive coping strategies, and give her hope. To do this, we've started an online counselling program so that our youth can still meet with their therapist via text, phone call, or video chat.
Just this week, our therapists have spoken to many youth who feel like Emma. This is no time for our youth to feel alone with nowhere to turn. We must continue to be there for them over the weeks and months to come, when they need us more than ever.
Your action is needed now. Please make your gift today to provide free mental health therapy. You’ll help keep our youth safe and healthy when they are at their most vulnerable.
