Our Story

Adolescent mental health is an increasing and urgent health issue in our community and, all the more recently in the time of COVID. Public health options to meet those needs are inadequate. The Friends of Girl Power Hour are a group dedicated to supporting charitable initiatives that are filling the gaps for adolescent mental health, ensuring those in need receive help, and that there are sufficiently trained therapists and professionals to provide support.

 

The Girl Power Hour event itself raises awareness for best parenting practices and the serious issues associated with adolescent mental health and raises funds to accomplish the goals above.

 

In particular, donation dollars raised go to Lionheart Foundation which is dedicated to empowering youth of all genders to achieve strong mental health and well-being. Lionheart delivers its services through counsellors, focused on the unique mental health needs of youth and their families. Anxiety is the most significant emotional health issue treated, commonly manifesting itself in eating disorders, self harm, depression and suicidal adulation.

 

Lionheart Foundation provides (1) subsidized counselling for individuals and families who cannot afford to pay full cost of treatment, and (2) training of therapists, doctors, nurses and other specialists to increase capacity in our community.

Girl Power Hour 2020

Last year’s 8th annual Girl Power Hour was held in November of 2020, at the peak of the pandemic. The topic was  KIDS & COVID: Anxiety Amped – How to Help . The video on our webpage contains the essential therapeutic content from that event, focusing solely on the valuable insights from two of Lionheart Foundation’s partner therapists with practical tools for those facing the unique challenge of raising children during a pandemic. Learn what’s really going on inside a child’s brain, what to watch for, how to manage big emotions and boredom, and what opportunities exist in this time of restrictions, physical distancing, and uncertainty. Many may be surprised by the learnings. Check out the dropdown box on this webpage entitled ‘Resources’ for parenting advice from the same Lionheart Therapists and their recommended reading lists. Over the years Girl Power Hour annual events have raised over $2.5 million in support of anxiety-based mental health for kids and adolescents and to help build stronger families in our community. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for learnings throughout the year.

"The panel, the speakers, everyone up there had something worthwhile to say and all of them clearly cared deeply about the cause. I can't wait to sit down with my wife tonight to talk about our kids and how important these days are in their development."

A Father

"It was an inspiring hour to say the least, creating a wide open heart and a face full of tears, not to mention lasting knowledge on how to tackle real-life home situations (which I already used last night!)……The panel was amazing, and the speakers, well...I'm speechless. It was a powerful event, and we all appreciate everything the Foundation does, and all it has done for us"

A Mother

"I have 13 & 16 year old granddaughters and just attending the Girl Power Hour has opened my eyes and led to me being much more proactive & engaged in spending quality time with my girls."
