HISTORY OF YPAHD DAY

In 2012, our youth chapter created a one-day youth conference (YPAHD Day) in conjunction with the HSC National Conference. In 2015, we hosted YPAHD day in 3 cities across Canada! YPAHD Day continues to grow and now meets annually, either at the HSC National Conference, or at the regional days. YPAHD day attendees appreciate the opportunity to connect with others who understand their experiences, breaking the sense of isolation, alongside much needed education, support, and a few fun and crazy antics.
