Your teens are counting on you—and all of Quebec’s teenagers, too!
Fondation Jeunes en Tête’s mission is to prevent psychological distress in 11 to 18 year-olds in Quebec. We achieve our mission by offering online tools and school-based awareness workshops to teens, their parents and school staff.
Destigmatizing, raising awareness and providing tools—these are some of the concrete actions we take every day to help future generations.
Tools Suitable for Everyone
For almost 25 years, we have been offering prevention workshops in high schools across the province.
- The Mental Health Basics workshop: aimed at students in Secondary 1 to 2, this workshop offers teenagers the keys to healthy mental health through introspection tools.
- Partners for life workshop: raises awareness of the signs of depression for those over 14 years of age.
For several years, Fondation Jeunes en Tête has tasked itself with helping teens and the adults around them, not only at school, but at home, too. To go beyond our free, in-school workshops, we developed 3 online toolkits with the support of psychiatrists, psychologists, university experts and teaching specialists. These educational, awareness-raising tools can be accessed at any time.
