Watch Hailey Benedict's music video for "Level Up" below!

"Like so many, I have also experienced challenges of my own and understand the stigmas and fears surrounding mental health, and want to help be voice for children and youth in our community so they know they are not alone. I have written a song called 'Level Up'. It’s an uplifting anthem, written in honour of CASA’s Level Up campaign and in support for individuals facing mental health struggles."
