The Punjabi Community Health Services (PCHS) will hold a free seven-week program at Roberta Bondar Public School to educate youth and parents on mental health, addictions, behaviour issues, and inter-generational and inter-cultural conflicts. The program will begin on March 28 and will run on every Thursday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. until May 16.
The program is divided into two sections. The Youth Support Group Program is designed for ages 14 to 21 years who may be experiencing difficulties in their lives as a result of a mental health, addiction and/or behavioural issue. The second section is targeted towards parents trying to understand issues that their children may be facing as a result of a mental health, addiction and/or behavioural issue. Both groups will be held on the same day simultaneously.
Roberta Bondar Public School is located at 30 Pantomine Blvd. in Brampton. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
