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 our Early Intervention stream, our team of mental health professionals assess the goals and needs of young people experiencing emerging mental health concerns in order to provide the right type of expert care as quickly as possible.
At the Youth Wellness Centre, you will be connected with a mental health professional who will work with you to help you understand the mental health challenges you are facing. Together, you will create a plan to address those challenges and to help you meet your goals. This plan might include services at the Youth Wellness Centre (like participating in a group to learn coping skills or meeting with one of our Youth Mentors), or help to access programs and services in the community. 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 each young person accesses will be different, depending on their needs and goals.
