Our purpose is to help children, teens, and families restore mental wellness, and to equip communities with the knowledge and resources to become youth wise in mental health.
There are many therapists out there but only few would choose to dedicate their practice to working with just kids, teenagers, and their families. Here at Youthwise, we have chosen to do so because we are genuinely passionate in helping them.
From the child’s first day of school, to puberty, and onwards to adulthood, these formative and turbulent years are often marked with additional stress, worry, and conflict. When a mental disorder is mixed into the picture, life can become that much more challenging and the problems can eventually become more than what the individual or family can handle. This is when professional help is required.
We understand these challenges and we want to help. That is why we exist. Simply put, our purpose is to help children, teens, and families restore mental wellness, and to equip communities with the knowledge and resources to become youth wise in mental health.
We help children, teens, and families restore mental wellness by providing specialized counselling and therapeutic interventions that are research-based, relevant, and respectful of all individuals.
We also want to make our services as affordable and accessible to as many families as possible so we offer the option of a sliding fee scale based on household income and individual circumstances. Learn more about our counselling services for children and teens.
Another big part of our mission is to also be a practical resource on child and youth mental health for communities including schools, churches, local community organizations, and others.
We do so by providing educational workshops on a variety of mental health topics, trainings for youth leaders and volunteers, and more. Learn more about our training and equipping.
