The Robb Nash Project works with schools across Canada to support the mental health and well being of young people (ages 12-18). Harnessing the power of music and storytelling to engage youth and start the conversation about mental health, The Robb Nash Project encourages young people to get help from a trusted source, make positive life choices and lead lives of significance and purpose. Working to break through mental health stigmas, issues such as anxiety, depression, addiction, cutting, suicidal ideation and trauma are discussed, along with messages of help and hope.
To date, The Robb Nash Project has reached over a half million students across the nation and created breakthrough moments for young people through school and arena concert presentations. Recently The Robb Nash Project created an online mental wellness program using the proven approach of music and storytelling. A Living Curriculum: Stories of Life through Darkness, is available to schools nationwide in English and French. We work closely with our partner schools, local resources, Kids Help Phone and professional counsellors to ensure support is available when young people are ready to talk.
Donations to The Robb Nash Project ensure that this program remains free to schools wanting it for their student populations.
