The Community Healing Project (CHP) will begin the Toronto community tour of the CHP Documentary in the Regent Park community in downtown Toronto. This event is a collaboration between CHP Central quadrant lead agency The Neighborhood Group (TNG) and Mothers for Peace Regent Park.
The screening event will take place on Tuesday, February 28th, 2023, from 6PM to 9PM at Daniel Spectrum in Regent Park (585 Dundas Street East, Toronto).
The event will include a panel discussion with youth leaders in Community PEERS and reception afterwards with light refreshments. This is a free event.
The CHP is a prevention project aimed at addressing trauma as a root cause of youth violence. The project supports development of mental health literacy and resiliency in youth 12-24 who have been exposed to community violence. Through peer support certification and trauma informed community workshops, youth learn about trauma, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and hypersensitive flight/fight responses. CHP provides wraparound services to Peer Supporters (Healers) and youth through mental health literacy workshops, case management supports, employment services, and peer mentorship. The project is delivered by the City of Toronto in partnership with Stella’s Place, Jane and Finch Family and Community Centre, Yorktown Family Services, Agincourt Community Services Association (ACSA), and The Neighborhood Group (TNG). CHP is currently funded by Youth Gang Prevention Fund (YGPF) as part of the National Crime Prevention Strategy (NCPS).
