Finch Match My Donation Spotlight: First Episode Mood and Anxiety Program

This week's spotlight Finch Match My Donation is the

First Episode Mood and Anxiety Program

FEMAP is a program helping older teens and young adults (age 16-25) with emotional concerns that fall into the categories of mood and/or anxiety symptoms. They provide a safe and confidential place for youth to get help early, before symptoms begin to disrupt lives. FEMAP provides a full range of services, from assessing whether someone has a mood and/or anxiety disorder, to helping overcome symptoms with proven methods (including therapy, medication, and substance abuse treatments).

Despite these pressures, the Thames remains one of the most biologically diverse rivers in Canada. The river is home to over 90 species of fish and many Species At Risk including the spiny softshell turtle and the queen snake. The entire Thames River system has been designated a Canadian Heritage River based on its rich cultural heritage and diverse recreational opportunities.

"FEMAP is a organization dedicated to helping the community with Anxiety. I think we can all agree that Anxiety impacts so many people so I applaud FEMAP and Lewis Kent and Mike Ullerick for putting together such an amazing Golf Tournament and raising over $10,000."

- Ian Rake.
