Jack.org, a Canadian charity empowering young leaders to revolutionize mental health, and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation, dedicated to supporting the mental wellness of young people and working with them to create a kinder world, announced today that they are partnering to launch the Be There Certificate (BTC). The BTC is a free, self-paced, interactive online mental health course, available in English, French, and Spanish for young people and youth advocates that trains them to provide mental health support to their peers.
The Be There Certificate is designed to increase mental health literacy and provide youth with the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to safely support their peers who may be struggling with their mental health. It provides a simple and actionable framework, teaching people how to recognize when someone might be struggling, understand their role in supporting that person, and learn how to connect them to the help they need. In addition to providing tools for youth to support their peers, the Be There Certificate is available to those looking to improve their mental health literacy and prepare for future volunteer or employment opportunities.
The Be There Certificate will be available in French, English, and Spanish and employs approachable language, relatable visuals, and interactive activities to deliver a diverse learning experience incorporating a variety of learning styles. Realistic scenarios enable learners to dive deeper into the complexities of applying what they learned to real-life situations.
The Be There Certificate is funded in part by Presenting Sponsor, RBC Future Launch and other generous partners who supported the development of Be There and youth mental health initiatives through their partnership with Jack.org.
