In this fourth episode in our series about mental health and stigma, Julie Miller and Emily Vidal speak with Victoria Kuczynski. Victoria is a counsellor who works with the Montreal organization, Friends for Mental Health. We talk about the impact of the pandemic on youth based on Victoria's experience over the past year. Do we have unrealistic expectations of adolescents? How heavy are the burdens that they've had to shoulder recently? And what is the most important thing to do if you're worried about your mental health, or the mental health of a young person close to you? As Victoria says, it's "all about communication." It's in bravely reaching out and not giving up that we realize we're not alone.
