In the report My Real Life Book, I heard from many young people who said they felt “left out of their own lives.” This view was especially felt in the area of health care where decisions were being made about a child or youth’s body and medical treatment without their involvement or consent. Recent media stories have highlighted examples where health professionals, lawyers or service providers were making
these important decisions without considering the young person’s wishes.
Launched in 2008 to raise awareness on HIV/AIDS in Black communities in Canada, the program has grown to impact Black communities globally. It was created in response to calls of the community to provide a culturally appropriate response to HIV/AIDS awareness in the African, Caribbean and Black Communities and to address the issue of funding for various resources in the fight against the disease.
This fall Family Outreach and Response ran a photovoice program. For 9 weeks we met with six young people (18-25) who have experienced mental health distress and worked with them to explore the impact it has had on their lives and what hinders and helps as they move towards recovery.
From a Government of Ontario news release:
Ontario is adding three conditions to the list of medical conditions for which social assistance recipients may be eligible to receive a Special Diet Allowance.
This change will help affected individuals with the extra costs of a special diet.
Eligibility is verified through an assessment by an approved medical professional.
