The right services, at the right time, in the right place

What are Youth Wellness Hubs?

In February 2017, the Ontario government announced funding for integrated service hubs across the province to address gaps in the youth service system. Ten hubs are now being established to serve as fully integrated “one-stop-shops” for youth aged 12-25, to address their needs related to mental health, substance use, primary care, education, employment, training, housing and other community and social services. These hubs will also include peer services, outreach, and system navigation services. Services will emphasize quality and will be timely, integrated and co-located.

The hubs that are already offering services are:

Chatham-Kent     |     Central Toronto     |     Toronto East    |    Scarborough     |     Eastern Champlain, Rockland     |     Eastern Champlain, Cornwall     |     Haliburton County     |     Kenora     |     Niagara Region     |     North Simcoe

Proud to be one of the people interviewed for CBC’s the House which aired today. I was speaking about data collection but really excellent segments on, sick days, psws and among others - worth your time to listen in ... https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/chris-hall-this-expert-is-alarmed-by-canada-s-failure-to-collect-race-based-pandemic-data-1.5590623

Racism is a public health issue, manifesting itself in an inequitable distribution of health outcomes, be it COVID-19 or violence. And it’s a Canadian public health issue, not one we observe from a distance. 1/2
