Good physical health can lead to improved mental health and good mental health can lead to better physical health. 

Help us Develop a New Initiative Focused on the Mental and Physical Health of Youth Living with a Physical Disability

We would love to learn directly from youth living with a physical disability and their families to understand what mental and physical health supports are working, not working, and what can be done better.

The Youth Mental Health Grant Funds Grassroots Organizations Across Canada Providing Direct Care to Youth

Providing funding to Canadian grassroots organizations providing mental health care to the Black youth community, 2SLGBTQ+ youth communities, and where these two communities come together.

Why is Kindred Foundation concerned about youth mental and physical health?

Youth Mental Health

Youth have unique mental health challenges and they need help.  Accessing services can be burdened with too many barriers that we need to help remove.

Youth Physical Health

Not enough Canadian youth are meeting national physical activity guidelines.  Physical health programs and services are needed for everyone.
