On October 7, 2014, Toronto District School Board teacher Sheryl Boswell hosted the “Taking Action in Youth Mental Health in Education” event to raise awareness and funds for the Youth Mental Health in Education (YMHE) Action group. The YMHE Action group is comprised of educators, parents, people with experience in mental health issues, and concerned community members, all of whom share the goals of increasing awareness of youth mental health issues in the educational system and ensuring that accessible education is a reality for all.
