Transforming mental health care for young people in Alberta starts now.

While evidence-based mental health treatments are available, young Albertans are among the most underserved populations in terms of mental health and addictions challenges. The problem is existing services are not integrated. It’s hard for young people and their families/caregivers to know which door to walk through.

That’s where Kickstand comes in.

Young people and their families will benefit from online experiences, and eventually physical spaces, offering a wide variety of integrated services including physical and sexual health, mental health and substance use supports and services, and housing, employment, and other social services. Kickstand delivers it all in one location. Kickstand’s brand, website, and service offerings are all created in consultation with Alberta youth.

We’re excited about Kickstand and what it’ll mean for Alberta’s young people, today and into the future.
