Kids, listen up..

In light of the tragic story about Daron Richardson who passed away this weekend, I posted the following on my Facebook page and wanted to do the same here:

"No matter how bad you think it is, you can ALWAYS talk to someone. A parent, friend, teacher. Please, it's never as bad as you think. This message is especially important for young people. We are all here to help"

If those are not options for you and you want a free confidential service, then Kids Help Phone 1-800-668-6868 or is another option.

A Celebration of life is being planned for this Wednesday, details are here.

Donations, in addition to or in lieu of flowers, can be made to: The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health - Youth Program 1145 Carling Ave., Ottawa, ON K1Z 7K4 or
