WORDS FROM OUR FOUNDER, LYR WELTSMAN

I've been there...

BreakingTheChalk is what I needed when I was going through difficult mental health issues. It's the support I wish my parents had too.

While education has always been an interest, my mental health experience and schooling inspired me to make the needed change in the education and mental health disciplines. I took my struggles and experience and channelled them into my work. 

I advocate for youth mental health worldwide, and with BreakingTheChalk, with the mission to enhance knowledge and make the change. 

I aim to break away from how our youth and families are supported and understood and to rebuild the schooling and mental health approaches effectively.

Evidence-based treatment built to integrate with everyday life

We use the most effective evidence-based care for young people – holistic and innovative methods that empower kids, teens, and families to overcome mental health challenges. 

Our virtual care allows supportive accessibility and comfort to heal and be invested in your therapeutic journey.
