From CTV News– A new network of youth hubs will soon be opening in Manitoba to help young people access mental health supports.
“Now we’re going to do an even better job of wrapping around young people and ensuring that they and their families get the support that they need,” said Connie Walker, president and CEO of United Way Winnipeg.
The youth hubs, which will be located in Winnipeg, Brandon and Selkirk, will all bring different youth mental health services to one location.
“One stop for services around mental health, addictions support, primary care, peer support and other social services like employment, for example,” Walker said.
She added that the development of the hubs will be guided by youth, “because we want them to be trusted, accessible places where young people feel comfortable.”
