For youth relying on their local Youth Wellness Hub, their circle of care extends beyond the service providers and plays a critical role in their journey. Individuals supporting youth is unique to each case, and can include anyone from families, caregivers, guardians, friends, partners, loved ones, support networks, and others.
Navigating youth mental health and substance use services to support youth can be challenging. It may be emotional, confusing, overwhelming, and isolating. YWHO is here to help.
Our youth wellness hubs are consistently working with families and caregivers to determine their needs, ensure they feel acknowledged and accepted, understand the role they play in a young person’s life, and are appropriately involved in any next steps in the process. If you have questions about the services for youth or the involvement of families and caregivers, please contact your local hub. They can provide you with specifics on the process and what to expect.
