How We Help

Today, adolescent mental health remains an area of increasing need but one that is still highly disjointed and under-resourced. According to Statistics Canada, young people aged 15-24 experience the highest incidence of mental disorders of any age group in Canada and recent studies report that suicide is now the leading cause of death for children aged 10 to 14

We have an opportunity – and a responsibility – to address this issue.

Lionheart’s mission is to facilitate comprehensive access to best-in-class mental health supports for children, adolescents and their families experiencing anxiety-based mental health challenges. We do this through building awareness, education and therapeutic capacity to address anxiety-based mental health needs in our community and through the provision of financial subsidies for treatment.
