At the University of Toronto, we never underestimate the power and impact of student groups who want to see change.
Cam’s Kids is a national not-for-profit organization that is committed to supporting young people struggling with anxiety and promoting mental health awareness. Starting in 2016, the foundation now has chapters of student ambassadors at 21 different Canadian universities and colleges.
According to the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), anxiety is the most common mental illness that impacts young adults. Cam’s Kids aims to help lessen this burden on adults by providing the resources to help students support and empower one another.
By running events and fundraisers to raise awareness and provide support, we strive to create a web of interdependence to lessen the burden of everyday anxieties on children and young adults.
