Many students I speak to are struggling with anxiety, mental and physical health issues. As a parent it is crucial to support their well-being but challenging to find help for them. Waterdown/Flamborough is fortunate to have a local charity, Healthy Youth Network (HYN) with resources for youth of all ages and parents – this may be a life-line, please visit this link for more info.
In addition to HYN, Body Brave is a local charitable organization focused on eating disorder treatment, training and education. Literally a life-line for ALL body types and are weight inclusive and proudly LGBTQIA2S+ friendly. Trained Doctors offer privacy protected online treatment and support group programs, workshops, as well as individual psychotherapy are all offered. Services are available for people aged 17+, FREE of charge or covered by OHIP.
Thank you everyone who has provided their feedback on the proposed Truck Route TRMP. As your Councillor, I have significant concerns with a number of proposed routes in the TRMP. As this study has progressed, I continue to work with staff to ensure resident concerns are taken into account on the proposed trucking routes in Flamborough. The study is far from being finalized – the draft recommended network is subject to change based on residential feedback, and your input is an integral part of this planning process. The deadline for feedback has been extended until July 25th. Please visit https://engage.hamilton.ca/TRMP for more information and to submit comments.
Should the city of Hamilton expand its urban boundaries for future expansion/development plans ?? This would include bringing agricultural lands into the urban boundary for development purposes to expand housing across the city. City staff are looking for your feedback on these future expansion plans that will affect Waterdown/Flamborough and all of our communities in Hamilton to determine where to accommodate population growth and job creation for the next 30 years.
