Please support children and youth facing mental health challenges by donating to PLEO.

We’re asking that you join us to show these kids and their families that our community has their back.

1 in 5 children and youth are facing mental health challenges. They depend on their parents to help them find their way forward. But when a family is drowning in the struggle of a child’s mental health challenges, even just keeping their heads above water seems out of reach.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

They need support. That is what we do, and we know that it works: 90% of the parents we help are better able to support their child, access services, cope with challenges, and feel less alone, isolated, and stressed.

Your gift will unlock a child and family’s capacity to find their way forward.

A gift of $20 provides a family with support through our Parent Support Groups.
A gift of $50 provides a family with support through our Parents’ Helpline.
A gift of $250 provides a family with intensive support through our Mobile 1-on-1 Service.

There’s more. Every gift shows these families that you have their back. That they are not alone. And that is a gift of not just help, but hope.

Donations through this form are processed securely through CanadaHelps. Tax receipts are issued for donations of $10 or more. Our charitable number is 895635019 RR0001.

As a mental health professional working with children, youth and families, I am grateful for PLEO and the support it provides children/youth and their families. As a parent-led organization, it fills the gap that professional mental health services do not provide. If PLEO did not exist I simply don’t know what I would recommend in its place.
