Regi Mental Health Ambassadors welcome The Jack Project

May 04, 2016

Students watching presentation from Jack.orgOn May 2 Regiopolis-Notre Dame students had the opportunity to participate in a Jack Talk – the only national network of young leaders who travel to schools to transform discussions of mental health.

RND Mental Health Ambassadors welcomed Alexis Lahorra and Tabatha Whitney from the Jack Project, who shared their experience with mental health and stigma. Alexis and Tabatha brought energy to the RND group and engaged with students to learn more about mental health. Alexis and Tabatha said it's a great way to connect with young leaders to initiate discussions of mental health, rather than traditional lecture style presentations.  

Jack Talks are presented by young people to encourage students to better care for themselves and support their peers. In 2010 a first year Queen's University student, Jack Windeler died by suicide. His family and friends made donations to Kids Help Phone in Jack's memory, and this support laid the foundation for The Jack Project.
