Cure Courts: Awareness for Youth Mental Health

Shak’s World in partnership with the Canadian Mental Health Society present Cure Courts, an important initiative which combines basketball and education to better support youth mental health. Cure Courts is aimed to bring local mental health resources to youth, as well as to help them better understand the mental health system and where their support comes from. It is a day which brings youth together to create connections and relationships that will last them a lifetime.

The day will consist of educational presentations focused on what mental illness is and why it is important to sustain a healthy body and mind. As well there will be a five on five basketball tournament for boys and girls ages 8 to 16 years old.  This year the event will include professional athletes, give aways and activities fo everyone to enjoy. Coaches and Mentors will be available for the youth to connect with at the event and will be available as resources to these youth well past June 22.
