Through artistic expression The Creative Spark creates a meaningful pathway for young Canadians to break down the stigma of mental illness and to take responsibility for their own mental wellness.
Based on the award winning Creative Spark project launched in 2004 the new program The Creative Spark – Logon for Mental Wellness continues to connect face to face with children and teenagers delivering a unique Mental Wellness information program through hands-on creative activities and high-energy student inspired events.
At the same time The Creative Spark – Logon for Mental Wellness reaches out to each community to learn what “connections” are working and what are not when it comes to the exchange of on-line information needed to support young Canadians struggling with Mental Illness.
In a continuous loop, community specific mental health information is fed back into The Creative Spark – Logon for Mental Wellness program. Backed by state-of-the-art internet “App” technology The Creative Spark frames multiple sources of on-line information providing intuitive access to community specific, youth focused mental health support.
Based on who is looking for what information The Creatives Spark – Logon for Mental Wellness delivers the most current community specific information available as well as applicable mental health on line tools. This is especially valuable to remote communities.
All information garnered from The Creative Spark project is treated as evidence based research. Designed as a research road tour, town profiles are uploaded in real-time with comparative evaluations and community best practices returned to all stakeholders.
