Project Description

Discovery College Kelowna logo

An initiative of the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Discovery College Kelowna provides a variety of free podcasts and online courses for youth and families. A series of online workshops on how to cope with the current Covid-19 crisis as well as a podcast called “What Really Works” have become very popular. Coming from real-life experience these programs provide young people with tools and tricks to support their mental well-being – right now and in the long term.

Thanks to the financial support of the Blenk Family Fund and the KGH Foundation, the podcast and the courses can be offered at no cost.
