The F.O.R.C.E. Society for Kids' Mental Health

F.O.R.C.E. - Families Organized for Recognition and Care Equality.

The F.O.R.C.E. Society for Kids' Mental Health is a provincial organization that provides families with an opportunity to speak with other families who understand and may be able to offer support or advice on what has worked for them. The F.O.R.C.E. also provides families and professionals with information, tools, and tips on how to support and assist children with mental health difficulties.

The FORCE mandate is to support and empower families and work collaboratively with professionals and systems in understanding and meeting the mental health needs of families.

From co-founder of The FORCE Society for Kids' Mental Health, Keli Anderson;

"We are all families.  We are asking that you join us in support of kids and their families. If four kids show up at a hospital with broken arms, all four will get treated.  If four kids show up with mental health challenges – only one and a half** kids will receive treatment.
We are all families. We can make a difference together. - Join us."
