The Canadian Public Health Association's (CPHA) National Literacy and Health Program wants to thank the National Literacy Secretariat for funding the development of Mind Over Violence Everywhere (M.O.V.E.).
We also want to thank the following groups for their help in organizing focus groups of youth: Frontier College; the Students Commission; Central Eastern Literacy Outreach Office Gander, NF; Newtown Learning Centre, Surrey, BC; YMCA of Moncton, NB; Regional Library of Halifax, NS; and the White Buffalo Youth Lodge of Saskatoon, SK.
CPHA thanks the National Literacy and Health Program partners, health providers and literacy practitioners who reviewed this resource and offered helpful suggestions.
And finally, thank you to the hundreds of youth who gave their opinions, shared their stories, inspired creativity and gave valuable feedback. You are heroes of an uncommon nature and inspire hope and compassion for all.
