Cross-Cultural Resources 

Here you will find information about the Kelty Centre's cross-cultural mental health literacy projects, as well as mental health & substance use resources available in different languages. 

These two videos describe where families can get help when their child is experiencing a mental health challenge and what families can expect during their first visit with a health professional.

Families, Together

This video features four families from different cultural backgrounds sharing their experiences supporting a child or youth with a mental health challenge. The video also features two health professionals sharing their insights on how families can support the mental well-being of children and youth. The video and complementary discussion guide are available in six different languages.

We encourage you to watch the video, talk about it with your friends and family (with the help of our discussion guide!), and share it with others!
