Real YOUth

CTV and United Way of Calgary and Area have joined forces in a multi-year partnership project

CTV Calgary and the United Way of Calgary and Area have come together to raise awareness about mental health in a three-year initiative called Real YOUth.

The goal of the multi-year project is to uncover the hidden truths behind stress and anxiety among youth.

Kids who are having difficulty can call 211 to get connected with community resources or call connecteen at 403-264-teen (8336).

The connecteen call line is answered 24 hours a day (peer support is provided from 5pm -10pm) and an online chat and email service can be accessed through their website.

Join our conversation on youth stress and anxiety on United Way's Calgary Social Voice Blog and follow the conversation on twitter under #RealYOUth
