Toronto East Youth Wellness Hub

We are a welcoming and inclusive space for youth aged 12 -25 who are looking for support in mental health, substance use, physical and sexual health, education, employment, housing and other areas of wellbeing.

Balancing school, jobs, relationships, and home can be challenging -- and finding the right services for help can be just as hard. Through a range of mental health and community services, we are able to give you the choices to create a pathway of support that aims to improve your health and wellbeing.

Youth Drop-In and Wellness Events

Join us in a welcoming space with snacks, music, video games and access to other drop-in services including housing, employment, and post-secondary support. We also host monthly wellness events with fun activities like painting, crafts, self-care practices, giveaways and more!


Therapists are available to help you explore your emotions, gain insights into your behaviours and thoughts and provide helpful strategies that you can implement in your daily life. Whether you want to talk about anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationships, coping with trauma or managing stress, our counsellors will listen and support you in enhancing your emotional well-being

Health Services

Our nurse practitioners can provide you with short-term clinical care, including physical, mental, and sexual health. They are here to help you with needs such as managing medications, discussing birth control options, referring to specialists and more. If recommended by one of our providers, a psychiatric consultation is also available to support with diagnosis, treatment plans, and medication management.

Care Navigation 

Care navigators will work with you to set and achieve goals in areas such as health, mental health, employment, education, housing, and more. They will also help you to navigate social service and healthcare systems to find the best options for you.

Harm Reduction

If you need support reducing harm and improving well-being in relation to substance use, counsellors are available to provide you with guidance and tools to help you navigate through life while making safer and informed decisions.

Peer Support

Peer support workers provide support, guidance and understanding through their shared experience of navigating mental health services.  Peer support is offered in both individual and group settings.
