As part of our weekly speakers, we had the pleasure to hear from John Fletcher about the issue of teen mental health.

John Fletcher was born and raised here in Miramichi (Little Bartibog to be exact), but like many fellow Miramichiers he moved away for school and work. A few years ago John and his family finally found their way back home to the Miramichi. John currently works at Anglophone School District-North as the Mental Health Mentor, he has a part-time counselling private practice (www.johnbfetcher.com) and he is the owner of Fletchers Farm: Corn Maze and Fun Park. John is very passionate about the field of mental health, in particular, the area of resilience, which is what he spoke to the club about. Attached is a contributed video about the school program, as well as a link to a mental health resource.

John (R) was thanked by Rotarian Stephen Lynch (L).
