Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario (YWHO) is a network of 22 YWHO hub networks operating across Ontario. These spaces offer a range of Integrated Youth Services in one place.
YWHO provides youth aged 12 to 25 with access to the services they need to support their mental health at no cost.
These services include:
- Mental health and substance use counselling
- Sexual health services
- Other primary health care services
- Employment, education and training supports
- And other community and social supports to improve overall wellness.
Youth Wellness Hubs also provide skills and well-being activities, such as workshops, health and leisure activities, cultural programming, special events, and drop-in time. Community and social supports at YWHO prioritize youth interests and needs to improve their overall youth wellness.
YWHO spaces and services are co-created with youth, and youth are supported to take an active role in their own care. Services are accessible by walk-in sessions, booked appointments, and in some communities, virtually.
