Wellness Your Way

Wellness Your Way

In Ontario, young people are re-imagining mental health and wellness so that it works for them.

They are co-creating spaces where they can walk in and get the support they need.


The right services in the right place at the right time

Between school, jobs, relationships and home, balancing life can be a challenge, especially for young people. Finding help to face these challenges can be even tougher.

For too long, the different services that young people need have been disconnected and hard to navigate, neglecting important aspects of their mental health and wellness. YWHO is all about creating the space to help young people find the right services, at the right time, in the right place.

Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario offers a range of integrated supports to empower young people aged 12-25 to address their needs and forge new paths for wellness.
