St. Catharines hosts free virtual mental health event for youth
St. Catharines will be hosting a free mental health event for young people as the pandemic continues to weigh heavily on minds.
Young people will be able to go to HopIn.com and enter a virtual venue on June 18th for the event called 'Youth Matters.'
They will be able to freely enter and leave virtual areas, join breakout rooms, and connect one-on-one with peers and presenters.
Paralympian Kevin Rempel will deliver a keynote address focused on resiliency.
Rempel was involved in a 2006 motorcross accident and told he would never walk again, but he defied the odds and went on to earn a bronze medal for sledge hockey at the 2014 Sochi games.
The St. Catharines Youth Collective is spearheading this event.
