Focus Groups
Program/Service of : Youth Net (YN)
One of YOUTH NET / RÉSEAU ADO’s (YN/RA) main objectives is to provide a safe forum for young people to express, explore and discuss their views and concerns about mental health, mental illnesses and how to cope with stress.

There are usually 8-12 participants per group and we ask that no “adults” be present in the room during the group. YN/RA has found that the presence of “authority figures” during the group sometimes makes open conversation among the youth more difficult.
