Tackling a persistent and “wicked” health challenge in London-Middlesex

LONDON, ON – The Ontario Trillium Foundation, along with MPPs Peggy Sattler and Terence Kernaghan, will be at the MINDS Convening to announce a grant to support the promotion of mental and emotional well-being for transitional-aged youth in the community.

MINDS is the Mental Health Incubator for Disruptive Solutions in London-Middlesex. It is a social innovation lab with a mission to address the complexity of the mental health system and approach the entirety of its broad-ranging factors.
