Creative Spark Development – 2018

As founder of the Creative Spark Logon for Mental Wellness I am thrilled to announce the launch of our new NFP program CREATIVE SPARK DEVELOPMENT.

With the amazing support of our GM Caylee LaBranche we kicked off our new initiative May 1st 2018. The program runs until April 2022.

Caylee LaBranche – GM Creative Spark Development

For Creative Spark Development we are leveraging our own ten-year track record as a successful community based grass roots mental health program.   Creative Spark Development will improve and embolden other Grass Roots Programs (GRPs) across Canada.  By supporting promising Grass Roots Programs in a structured way they in turn improve their particular strength and reach to support individuals and families struggling with mental health issues within the community(s) they serve.

Community based Grass Roots Programs are paramount to the support and recovery of those suffering with mental illness. Well managed Grass Roots Programs provide significant help reducing shame and low self-esteem through resilience building and helping to fight the stigma around mental illness. They also provide a direct link to professional services where and when they are needed, what we call the Safety Net.

We are also excited to show off our new logo (see above).
