HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS PODCAST:

This podcast shares the findings and experience of following a Collective Impact process for the Rural Ottawa Youth Mental Health Collective, led by Nicole McKerracher, Executive Director of O-YA, a youth association in a rural Ottawa village.

We’re joined by Emily Dozois, a youth with personal experience trying to access mental health services in rural Ottawa, and Evaluations Coordinator for the Collective. In particular, we hear the actionable findings from their survey of over 300 rural Ottawa youth, along with challenges and tips for creating and administering a survey through social media. Overall, they share their reflections on what has made this Collective successful and some of the ups and downs you might expect from Collective work. We also hear their enthusiasm and dedication for addressing this important and often overlooked issue. Have a listen!
