Canada's Youth Mental Health Charity
Jack Chapters are trained youth-led groups working year-round to identify and dismantle barriers to positive mental health in their communities.
The mental health landscape is different all over Canada, so Jack Chapters use a local approach, rather than "one size fits all." Jack Chapters are about bringing the mental health revolution to your own backyard.
Local Summits give young people the chance to get together and strategize ways to improve youth mental health at the local level. Advocacy is tricky work! Summits exist to bring passionate mental health advocates together to exchange big ideas. By teaming up and sharing their experiences, young advocates learn the best ways to improve mental health for their peers.
As a Jack Talks Speaker, you’ll travel to schools and youth-centric communities to deliver engaging mental health presentations that young people will actually listen to. You'll have the opportunity - and the ability - to help lead the mental health movement by teaching young people that we all have mental health and how they can support each other and themselves.

Crisis Text Line powered by Kids Help Phone is the only free, 24/7 bilingual text line for people in Canada. The service is delivered by trained, volunteer crisis responders who work remotely. Crisis responders reply to texts from people looking for support, helping them identify how they’re feeling, discuss different coping strategies and if required, collaboratively set up a safety plan.
