Youth Counselling Program
CMHA Huron Perth offers counselling and support to youth ages 12-18 who are struggling with their own addiction issues, or dealing with addiction issues of a family member or friend. We understand that addiction might be part of bigger concerns happening in young people’s lives, and offer support based on individual needs. Our services are completely confidential, and it is up to the youth who, if anyone else, is involved in their support.
Services offered include:
- Access to a counsellor in all high schools (both public and Catholic) across Huron and Perth counties
- Counselling support for youth not currently engaged with traditional schooling, or who would prefer to access support outside of their school environment
- Support for family members and caregivers of youth dealing with addiction issues
- Support connecting to other appropriate resources in the community based on individual need
Youth Community Treatment Program
The Youth Community Treatment Program (YCT) is a flexible treatment program that serves youth ages 12-24 years of age across the Ontario South West (formerly SWLHIN). Under the umbrella of the YCT program offerings, supports include day treatment programming, full day and half day workshops, reoccurring groups and presentations for youth and/or their loved ones. Topics include education about substance use and problematic behaviours (e.g., gaming, social media use), healthy coping strategies, goal setting, managing emotions, healthy relationships, and more. YCT is a collaborative program with youth-serving organizations within this catchment area, and works closely with these organizations for referral and follow up supports.
