Youth Voice Report: Mental Health & Suicide

Released in September 2016 by the Social Planning Council Oxford, and funded partly by the Time 2 Change Minds (T2CM) Fund through the Canadian Mental Health Association Oxford County Branch and Woodstock Hospital. The Youth Voice Report: Mental Health & Suicide thematically outlines the issues that have come to the surface in the ways suicide, mental health, and related topics are confronted by our youth.

A summary fact sheet of this report can be found below:

Challenging the myths: Refugees in Canada
What is myth and what is fact? Our new publication separates it out for you: Challenging the myths: Refugees in Canada
Food for Change
Have you ever wondered why Food Banks, created as a temporary measure, are still going strong today? Simply put, because while they put food in bellies, they do not eliminate food insecurity (otherwise known as lack of adequate access to healthy, culturally appropriate, affordable food). How can we move the mark from charity to dignity? Our new publication, Food for Change: From Charity to Dignity, gives some ideas.
Oxford County is ready for change. There are many groups working towards making the shift from charity to dignity. Will you join us?
