Youth and Teen Mental
Programs for ages 12 to 25
Looking for help? You’ve come to the right place. Youth and teen mental health services’ primary focus is the emotional and social well-being of young people aged 12 to 25, as well as parent groups and staff from youth-serving agencies. CMHA offers a variety of programs to help give you the tools to cope with mental illness and mental health issues. There is no doctor’s referral necessary; so you can refer yourself, a friend, or family member at any time.
Whether it’s you or someone you know confronting a mental health issue or mental illness, you can find help by browsing through the programs below covering topics from early intervention to suicide prevention. Together we can increase understanding of youth mental health and end the stigma.
You are not alone, here are the programs we have to offer:
H.O.P.E - Early Psychosis Intervention (14 to 35)
Helps young adults in York Region and South Simcoe who are experiencing a first episode of psychosis to get their lives back on track and stay well.
In a recent survey, students reported that:
24% of youth
visited a mental health professional at least once in the previous 12 months. 95% of youth used a crisis line because they needed to talk to someone about a problem.
