Youth Net/Réseau Ado (YN/RA) Ottawa is a bilingual regional mental health promotion and intervention program run by youth, for youth with full professional support through the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO).
Our objective is to reach out and help youth develop and maintain good Mental Health as well as healthy coping strategies for dealing with stress, while decreasing stigma around Mental Illness and its treatment. We do this through education and intervention.
We educate service providers, families, the community, policy makers and youth, on youth mental health issues
We have tools to help identify youth in need of an intervention, preferably early, but also those already in crisis
We promote mental health to decrease the stigma associated with mental health/illness in the public and with youth in particular
