Chilliwack - Youth as Gatekeepers, in partnership with MCFD Child and Youth Mental Health Chilliwack and Chilliwack School District #33, seeks to prepare all students, in the Chilliwack area, for difficult conversations as they spontaneously arise; to become literate in mental health (MH) matters, recognize signs and symptoms of MH concerns, assist in reducing MH stigma, and be aware of who to talk to when MH concerns present themselves (in peers or themselves).
Small groups of interested youth (supervised by a facilitator) will develop their leadership skills by creating a MH presentation. The presentation will mirror their personalities and passions, and will share the MH information with other students in their schools and surrounding community.
Our goal is that every young person be equipped to know what to do and who to go to if someone they know is struggling.
There are group facilitators stationed at each secondary school. Their roles are to educate, equip, and foster leadership skills amongst students involved in the program - to provide the tools necessary to collaboratively raise awareness about mental health. If there are any questions please feel free to contact your SSS counsellor.

Anxiety is like your body’s smoke alarm – if there is a fire you want it to be going off…if there isn’t then it’s just concerning and can get in the way of every day life. How can you turn off your smoke alarm if it’s going off when there is no fire?
