Flex Your Head program supports mental health in Kawartha Lakes

By Lindsay Advocate

Flex Your Head is a program created by Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada and Astra Zeneca, designed to promote mental health and resiliency among youth.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes’ ‘Flex Your Head’’ program will be jointly funded by ‘NJ5’ and Ward’s Legal.

Donations from NJ5 – $2500/year for 5 years and from Ward’s Legal of $2000/year for 3 years will enable the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kawartha Lakes to provide mental health supports for local youth for the next 5 years.

Promoting mental health and wellness is an important part of everything that Boys and Girls Clubs do. Through fun, recreation, mentor-ship, leadership, and social engagement, clubs provide a safe and engaging environment in which children and youth can grow and thrive.

NJ5 was founded by Maggie Jewell to honour her son, Nolan, who died by suicide in 2012 at the age of 19.
