The Maddie Project - Spotlight Of The Month (December-February)

The Maddie Project works to create better facilities for teens with mental health issues

The Maddie Project ( is a community effort in support of youth struggling with depression and other mental health related concerns. Driven by community collaboration and events, the project’s goals are to raise awareness by sparking conversations about youth depression and mental health concerns as well as to help provide uninhibited access to support for youth and their families.

Through fundraising and collaborating with many organizations including North York General Hospital Foundation, Skylark Children, Youth & Families Foundation and other organizations in our community and across Canada, we are making strides towards helping provide improved access to support for youth. To date the project has engaged millions of people in active conversations and has raised over $1.3 million dollars in partnership with North York General Hospital Foundation towards the development of Maddie’s Healing Garden and support of other child and adolescent mental health services. 

All of the funds raised through this program will go directly towards enhancing services for kids and their families struggling with mental health concerns.
