Vanier Children’s Mental Wellness has developed a PhotoVoice project with the objective of helping our most vulnerable children in learning how to express themselves through photography and words. The beauty of PhotoVoice is to give the children we serve a way to tell a story, to capture moments and their own personal interest so they can express their own vision of what it means to struggle with mental health needs.
Vanier is able to maintain the PhotoVoice project through donations. We have all heard the saying that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. With your donation, we would like the opportunity to inspire the children we serve with a positive and enriching experience by learning to look at the world around them through photography. To put it simply, our goal is to give each child that resides or attends services at Vanier, the opportunity to capture photographs that speak to their most inner voice, to give meaning to what cannot be easily expressed by words, and to positively affect change in their community by bringing a voice to children’s mental health.
