Youth Services

HGH offers mental health and addiction services for youth and their families. We also collaborate with other healthcare partners to provide mental health services for young children.

Youth Transition Program

This program is designed to help teenagers and young adults (16-24) transition from youth programs to adult services in mental health and addictions. We guide our clients to the available resources in mental health and addictions at HGH or in the region. We know the system can be complex, so we provide care coordination and support as we navigate the system with you.

We can help if you are struggling with:

  • Stress
  • Sleep problems
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-harm
  • Other problems

How to access the Youth Transition Program?
