In March, the Schizophrenia Society of Canada brought together youth from across the country to share their stories about mental health.  The stories were made as part of a participant action research project looking at the reasons young people who have experienced psychosis use cannabis.  A group of twenty-three youth came together at the Delta Chelsea Hotel to share their experiences, learn from each other and be creative.  Several youth who made their digital stories are peer leaders in the project, and will use their stories to engage their communities on the issues.

We spent four weekends in February working on stories with youth and elders in Six Nations. CDS Toronto partnered with cultural awareness presenter Cindy Martin to Haudenosaunee elders and youth to make digital stories. Funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and sponsored by the Six Nations Health Foundation Inc., the ECHOES project will use the stories in cultural awareness workshops in schools in the Haldimand region.
