In Canada, an estimated 1.2 million youth are affected by a mental illness yet only 20 per cent of those youth are able to access help. On September 30, you can help more youth gain access to mental health supports.

WES For Youth Online is hosting their inaugural golf tournament at Ainsdale Golf Course in Kincardine, ON. All level of golfers are welcome to come out to support the goal of raising funds and awareness. For only $150 a person (or $500 per team of four), golfers will receive 18 holes of golf with a cart, light lunch, full dinner, access to the silent auction, a gift bag and the ability to help out a worthwhile cause. Spots are limited.

“Young Canadians are struggling to access mental health services,” says Yolanda Cameron, cofounder and board chair of WES for Youth Online. “Our services help hundreds of youth every year and without fundraising dollars from events like this tournament, youth would continue to struggle to access mental health services.”

If you would like to sponsor the tournament or donate an item to the silent auction please contact WES For Youth Online at
