Media Release from Verto Health
March 15, 2023 (Toronto, ON) – Announced today, Youth Wellness Hubs Ontario (YWHO) and Verto Health are partnering to improve access to high quality Integrated Youth Services (IYS) for youth aged 12-25 years across Ontario. Together, YWHO and Verto Health will co-design and launch a unified digital YWHO front door and client portal, which will provide a range of developmentally and culturally appropriate Integrated Youth Services for youth and their families.
The YWHO Virtual platform will be a web-based platform that provides young people, safe, secure, and timely access to mental health and substance use services, as well as other primary care, community, and social support services. The goal is to improve access to YWHO’s Integrated Youth Services for young people in Ontario, for whom in-person hub services are not an option, including youth who currently do not have a youth wellness hub nearby, or youth who would rather receive services online.
