OTF Grant Helps Children with Mental Health Challenges in a Learning Environment

OTF Grant Helps Children with Mental Health Challenges in a Learning Environment

Today, Carizon shared the results of a pilot project that established a multidisciplinary team approach to helping children with mental health challenges. An Ontario Trillium Foundation Grant allowed for the delivery of a comprehensive system of assessment that included professionals like occupational therapists, psychologists and speech and language therapists, to share their expertise so that the children could experience greater success in their learning environment. Local MPP Mike Harris’ representative, Meghan Martin, and OTF Grant Review Team member Gebre Berihun were on hand to congratulate Carizon’s staff on this project and learn more about how it made a difference in the lives of the children.

June is Bike Month in Waterloo Region and we’re celebrating! Carizon is participating in the 2017 Ride for Refuge on September 30th. During the month of June, we are encouraging as many folks as possible to sign up for this Fall event! You will not only have a great day of camaraderie cycling in our glorious Region, but you will also support Carizon and the children, youth and families we help every day!

You can learn more by visiting the Ride for Refuge website and, specifically our Carizon page, to either start your own team in support of Carizon, join an existing team, or sponsor a rider. If you would prefer not to cycle, but would still like to get involved, you can participate in the walking option on event day. We hope to see you on September 30th!
