Shining a light on mental health

In celebration of Bell Let’s Talk Day, It Gets Better Canada hosted a free livestream roundtable talk on “The Power of Perseverance: A Queer Youth Mental Health Panel,” on January 25, 2022

Event recap

Check out highlights from our talk on queer mental health in celebration of Bell Let’s Talk, featuring inspiring words from Icesis Couture and our teen panelists: Clover, Friday, Ethan and Makayla!

While youth across the nation tackle mental health challenges, the pandemic has exacerbated the continued elevated struggles 2SLGBTQ+ youth face. The discussion, which highlighted stories of resilience, empowerment and shared learnings within the queer community, was co-moderated by It Gets Better Canada Executive Director, Omid Razavi, and Canada’s Drag Race season 2 winner, Icesis Couture and featured youth panelists who have appeared in this season’s “Queer Prom” Canada’s Drag Race episode.
