Team Unbreakable has adopted the model of the highly successful youth at risk run-therapy program developed by Trillium Health Partners in Mississauga, Ontario. It has since been introduced into elementary and high schools, community organizations, healthcare organizations, and hospitals.
Recent science has shown there is a significant correlation between physical activity and improved mental health. We invite you to browse our “articles” section to read more. One of the best books on the subject is Spark by Dr. John Ratey, a clinical associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

It is simply one of the best treatments we have for most psychiatric problems.”
This one word simply describes how we want youth to feel. Our goal is for youth to be strong and resilient. We want to give them the tools and resources that instill in them the confidence to overcome the many challenges they may be facing.
In this section we describe the four components of the youth mental health continuum where Team Unbreakable provides programs: Community programs, School programs, Community mental-health programs, and Hospital-based programs.
