ABOUT KIDS’ HEALTH LINKS FOUNDATION

 ORIGIN: Founded by Christina and Basile Papaevangelou in 2004 after her near death from Toxic Shock, KHLF is a National Charity based in Oakville, Ontario. We have empowered adolescents living with chronic conditions and life challenges and the professionals who have cared for them since 2007. We are the only charity in Canada specializing in online child life interventions and peer-to-peer support for youth living with medical conditions and other life challenges. We also provide adolescents with the tools to cope with stressful life events. Since KHLF’s founding, the foundation and The Board of Directors have raised more than $ 6,000,000 to deliver on our Mission and Vision.

 VISION: To be the premier national social and clinical support network that connects youth, teens, and health professionals to enhance their quality of life.

 MISSIONTo empower youth and teens living with chronic conditions, grief, mental health, and other life challenges and their health professionals by connecting them through inclusive communities of support and practice. To BETTER HEALTH OUTCOMES by fostering innovation and enhancing knowledge to improve care, health, and well-being across all sectors and communities (geographic, ethnic, and cultural).

 We provide at no cost three key programs:

–   UPOPOLIS is a private, safe, secure, and moderated online community that enables peer-to-peer engagement, connecting youth and teens facing life challenges to reduce isolation and stress and help them cope and live well.

–   Two online communities of practice: UPEDIA – for pediatric health care practitioners and UMIND – for child and youth mental health professionals facilitating professional peer-to-peer engagement, knowledge exchange, professional development, education, and sharing of best practices.

 Our work supports the World Health Organization’s definition of health.

 “Health is…a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
