Project 11 Mental Health Education Awareness – Intergenerational Programming

In partnership with the True North Foundation’s Project 11 Team and Ecole Charleswood, Riverwood Square is thrilled to offer new and exciting Mental Health Education Programming. This intergenerational project aims to provide a selection of interactive sessions in which students and residents will partner up to discuss a variety of topics pertaining to Mental Health Awareness. Developing the concept that Mental Health Awareness is beneficial for all humans regardless of age. The more we expand the conversation between various groups of people the healthier we become as a society!

Goals and outcomes:

  • Developing a sense of community
  • Closing the age gap
  • Introducing youth to an aging population and dispelling some of the stereotypes and myths they may have about this group
  • Creating relationships and trust
  • Creating a supportive environment to discuss vulnerable topics

For this particular activity we have selected a small group of Landing Residents. Sessions will occur monthly beginning in February and extending to the end of the school year in June.
