We invite you to join us in March as we begin our campaign for a new model of care in Edmonton.
Integrated Youth Services
Untreated mental health issues in early adulthood increase the risk of developing severe and enduring mental health problems.
Yet less than 25% of youth with these issues actually receive appropriate treatment.
The way we offer services must change.
The transition to adulthood is a unique and critical developmental stage in a young person’s life, and we have a chance to ease this transition with easy access to a variety of appropriate services under one roof. Integrated Youth Services.
Already, other provinces are successfully championing this new model (see, for example, Foundry). Inclusive, welcoming, youth friendly services are promoting engagement with young people and guiding them on a journey to wellness, one that will have lifelong implications.
With your support, we will create a network of integrated youth services in Edmonton and spark change throughout the province.
