New Offering!

YouthREX is excited to offer the Brain Story Certification to the Ontario youth sector in partnership with the Alberta Family Wellness Initiative and its parent organization, the Palix Foundation

Brain Story is based on the understanding that lifelong health is determined not just by our genes but by experiences that we have at sensitive periods of development that change our brain in ways that increase or decrease our risk for later physical and mental illness.
