About the Foundation

Our youth Foundation raises awareness to prevent psychological distress

Our history

Our mission at Fondation Jeunes en Tête is aimed at preventing psychological distress in Quebec youth aged 11 to 18.

We accomplish this mission by reaching out to teens in schools through our Partners for Life program and by supporting recognized community organizations and Canadian mental health charities that complement our work. We also create synergy among those who work with youth, in order to maximize our joint impact on young people.

Jean-Nicolas and Mia Verreault

Jean-Nicolas Verreault is an actor well known to the public who plays roles in both television and film. He is also a father of three daughters who have faced different challenges: Mia, 15, suffers from a generalized anxiety disorder. Romy has Tourette’s Syndrome and Simone has Craniofacial Nager Syndrome.

Mia, 15 years old, has been living for several years with a generalized anxiety disorder. “By partnering with the Fondation Jeunes en Tête, I want to talk about my experiences so that all young people who feel misunderstood know that there is hope for a better life,” – Mia Verreault.

“As a parent, it is often difficult to find the best ways to support your child. I want to make the Foundation’s tools known so that families who need them, or who have questions, feel supported,” Jean-Nicolas Verreault.
