If you are a young person experiencing mental health difficulties, it is never too early to #ReachOut.
In fact, research has proven that the earlier mental illness is identified, assessed and treated, the better the outcome for that young person.
As part of this stream, our team of mental health professionals assess the goals and needs of young people experiencing emerging mental health and addiction concerns in order to provide the right type of expert care as quickly as possible.
Young people who access this service will work directly with our team to develop a custom plan for recovery. We provide assessments, counselling, peer support, family support, psychiatric consultation, brief group therapy and help navigating community mental health services. Access to substance use counselling is also available through a partnership with Alternatives for Youth, who are located in the same space as the Youth Wellness Centre.
The services offered to every youth will vary based on their needs.
