RBC Youth health innovation Challenge 
~ Develop a solution that will increase access to meaningful mental health resources for the province’s young people -- no matter where they live, or their background. You’ll be part of a team who works together to develop healthcare solutions, practice skills in innovation development, pitching and more.

The nature of the solutions is up to each team, but could include community-based resources, culturally sensitive or multilingual resources, a crisis-intervention tool, or a digital platform that connects youth with mental health resources.

The winning team of each regional competition will receive a $2,000 prize and move on to the Pitch Finals, which will be held in May 2024. The winner of the final competition will be awarded $8,000 and support from the Nova Scotia Health Innovation team in further developing their idea between June and August 2024.

Interested students will need to sign up for a virtual information session. The last one is on March 26th at 6:30pm.
