On Wednesday, February 29, 2012, 10 organizations in 8 Canadian cities completed a snapshot survey of the homeless young people they worked with that day. This snapshot by the National Learning Community on Homeless Youth, is the first national survey of its kind with this focus.
- Homeless youth in Canada are coping with mental health issues at a rate of 2.5–5 times higher than the national average for youth.
- Many existing services do not meet their needs.
- Communities are struggling to support these homeless young people who need mental health programs and services.
