There is a clear connection between food insecurity and adverse mental health outcomes. We also know that food insecurity is a stressful experience that is compounded by feelings of shame, hopelessness, and alienation— all of which can trigger new or exacerbate existing mental health struggles for both youth and caregivers. Furthermore, concepts of ‘good food’ and cultural values attached to eating can further distort one’s relationship with food, intensifying feelings of shame, and provoking disordered eating for food insecure individuals. In this Frayme hosted webinar, Roots to Harvest and Choices For Youth examined what food insecurity looks like in Canada, explored the different factors that increase the risk of experiencing food insecurity, addressed adverse mental health outcomes connected to food insecurity, and discussed their own initiatives that approach the issue from a holistic, intersectional lens.

We know we need to better integrate the expertise of youth, caregivers and advocates with lived experience of mental health and substance use, but as a system we are collectively challenged by a cycle of engagement that fosters advocacy without solutions, builds advocates without channels of impact and makes promises without purpose. Frayme has responded to this gap by building a knowledge equity and engagement-focus on the team, actively hiring with lived expertise in mind and integrating lived experience as a form of evidence through Groundbreakers, a new national network of youth, caregivers and advocates. Groundbreakers are experts in their communities, their causes, and their own life experiences. Most of all, they’re experts at being themselves. Today, Groundbreakers represents 130 experts from all across Canada. To help move our youth mental health and substance use sector forward and continue the dialogue about inclusion of lived experience and expertise, Frayme will share lessons learnt from our journey of embedding meaningful engagement (sometimes successfully, sometimes not) in all that we do, and discuss how Groundbreakers are being matched across Canada to better inform systems and services through their lived expertise.
