We provide harm reduction services including safer injection and safer inhalation supplies. We also provide overdose response training and supply naloxone kits. Information on safer drug using and overdose prevention is also available.
The Youth Wellness Centre works with youth ages 17-25 who are struggling with mental health and substance use concerns. We have staff who are from the LGBTQ2S+ community on our team and all our staff provide a safe(er) space for LGBTQ2S+ youth. Our psychiatrists have expertise in working with trans youth in particular, and we provide trans peer support. Some of our other programming is described in separate records (for example: SAGE--peer support group for LGBTQ2S+ youth, 'Scope--peer support group for LGBTQ2S+ youth, and an LGBTQ2S+ Concurrent Disorders Clinician).
We will be running serveral programs within the new year on a weekly basis to create consistency
