NORTHBEAT worked with youth with direct (or indirect) lived experience with accessing mental health services in Northwestern Ontario. We are grateful for everyone who joined our Youth Advisory Group!
The NorthBEAT Collaborative was a group of committed, caring people who worked together to make it easier for Northwestern Ontario youth experiencing mental health issues to get the services they need , when and where they need them.
NorthBEAT’s Youth Advisory Group Members contributed their expertise and insights on ways to improve access to mental health services in Northwestern Ontario.
Youth with psychosis in Northwestern Ontario do not get the help they need when they need it.
We're changing that.
The best way to understand and realize what youth need is for us to hear it from the youth. Youth played a key role in identifying and bringing awareness to current issues and barriers regarding mental health within the community. Youth Advisory Group members helped offer suggestions and insights on ways to improve access to mental health services in Northwestern Ontario.
