Be Safe is a free mobile app that offers information and links to mental health, addiction and suicide prevention resources in Hamilton.
Be Safe is unique because it was developed in full partnership with both youth and professionals. It is a systems navigation tool that helps people find help when they need it, and supports them through the process of reaching out when life feels overwhelming.
By using information from a vast network of partners, Be Safe makes the process of finding the right help quick and easy.
This webinar will address the impact the pandemic has had on youth mental health and will review the fundamentals that we need to ensure are in place to create opportunities that inspire hope.
