A message from Sick Kids

SickKids is grateful to the Browns for their leadership and support in initiating a project through a generous gift from the Lisa Brown Charitable Foundation. It is their hope that intervention through early childhood education will help to decrease the incidence of suicide at a later age.

We are pleased to be working with the Lisa Brown Charitable Foundation to develop a web-based interactive story of Monarch's Mission for children 7 to 12 years of age with the involvement of their families. Children will participate in a unique video game to help them identify their emotions and also help them learn to feel comfortable talking about their emotions and understand the role emotions have in their lives.




This project combines the research and clinical expertise of SickKids with the passion of the Browns.

Dan & Fran Brown have dedicated their efforts to help erase the stigma surrounding mental health challenges to ensure that, as children mature, they will not be afraid or ashamed to seek the support of family, teachers and medical professionals when they need help.
