About the event

Young adults are often under-discussed in conversations around mental health and emotional support, but people entering adulthood face unique challenges compared to other age groups. Ledge Leadership wants to be a part of changing the conversation and creating innovative support programming for 18-30 year olds. In order to do that, we need YOU to tell us about your experiences and needs! We are hosting a focus group event from October 15th-16th at Ledge’s Retreat Centre in Clarksburg, Ontario to discuss the challenges you face in your life and how you would want support delivered! Your feedback will be included in a report written by Emjay Wright (a researcher and young adult themselves) that will guide Ledge’s services moving forward.

By attending the focus group, you’ll also experience Ledge’s workshop, Being Self-Led. This will be an introductory seminar exploring the different ways that stress can impact your body and mind, affecting what you want to do in your life, and who you want to be. Services, Supports & Setbacks is totally FREE, but spaces are limited so be sure to sign up now to secure your spot!

The event is taking place in-person at Ledge’s Clarksburg Retreat on October 15-16 from 7:00 pm-7:00 pm, and is open to anyone 18-30 who is currently living in Ontario. The Clarksburg Retreat is a gorgeous 6-acre getaway, featuring beautiful greenspaces and direct access to trails leading to the Beaver River and Clendenan Reservoir. This will be an overnight event with sleeping arrangements available onsite. Snacks and refreshments will be provided on the first evening and 3 meals will be offered on the second day. Please contact us if transportation is needed and we can work on arranging it. The Clarksburg Retreat is located at the following address:
