Understanding youth and young people as we do, we know how important it is to find the help that feels right for you. For this reason, we offer a range of solutions, including:

* Individual Conversations with a mental health professional
* Mentoring Program
* Community Outreach Program
* Experiential Workshops
* Informative Talks
* Peer Groups (Coming soon)


Conversations are one-on-one sessions you have with a member of our Mental Health and Wellbeing Team. We are: 

  • Counsellors
  • Mentors
  • Coaches
  • Chaplains
  • Qualified Youth Workers
  • Pastoral Care Workers

Conversations are more relaxed than a session with a clinical specialist. We are friendly, non-judgemental & caring and we focus on your strengths & help you find solutions.
