I am referred to as a mother with lived experience.
And I can assure you, it’s not one you’d want to share.
Helen Jennens is a mother from Kelowna, BC and an advocate for children and young adults suffering with mental health and substance issues. Her story is heart-breaking. She is shown here speaking at a private fundraising event for the KGH Foundation’s Not Alone campaign to raise $2 million, in collaboration with CMHA, to build Foundry Kelowna, an integrated care facility to support youth struggling with mental health and substance issues.
Please give to support our young people, and the future mental wellness of our community.
