St. Albert Youth Mental Health Hub

The Cause

Establish a Youth Mental Health Hub in St. Albert that is an evidence-based, youth-friendly, integrated service site to bring together wellness programs and services determined by youth for youth while not duplicate existing services.

Who Will it Benefit?

Integrated care from youth hubs has been shown to increase service access for all youth as well as populations that are underrepresented at traditional single healthcare settings such as adolescents in their early 20’s, homeless youth, low-income youth, or those who identify along the spectrum of sexual orientations.

Youth need to find a trusted place where they can manage their health and navigate pathways to specialized services. In the current system, youth tend to drop through the cracks when transitioning between services.
