As part of their work supporting the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) of Ottawa, the Youth and Caregiver Resource Group identified a need for mental health resources for diverse ethnocultural communities. The youth recruited several more youth outside of the resource group from various ethnocultural groups in Ottawa and enlisted the support of mindyourmind to co-create two different resources.

The Ethno-Cultural Youth Advisory Committee (EYAC) of the Youth Services Bureau (YSB) of Ottawa, is a peer-to-peer youth engagement committee that has existed since 2009. They focus on providing services and implementing programs that will help newcomer, refugee, second-generation, and racialized youth integrate and navigate more easily into Canada.
