This presentation was delivered on October 11, 2017 (United Nations International Day of the Girl Child) at the Calgary Telus Convention Centre as part of the Girl Power Hour.
Girl Power Hour is a lunch event presented by the Lionheart Foundation that inspires guests and builds awareness to empower adolescent girls and young women to achieve strong mental health well-being.
The Foundation delivers its services through counsellors in Calgary, focused on the unique mental health needs of adolescent girls, young women and their families. Anxiety is the most significant emotional health issue treated, commonly manifesting itself in eating disorders, self-harm, and depression.
