I am a youth looking for help

Sometimes life can be really hard and stressful. Maybe all you need is someone to talk to, someone who will listen, someone who doesn’t judge or question, and someone who will help figure out how to move forward. That is what we are here for.

If you are 18 or over, please contact Here 24/7 for service.

We can help you when you:

  • are feeling sad, overwhelmed, stressed or even hopeless
  • are having relationship problems (family, friends, etc.)
  • are having thoughts about hurting yourself or others
  • are struggling with school
  • have a mental health diagnosis and need to understand it better

Want to talk?

We are here for you, to listen to you, and to help you. It doesn’t matter what you want to talk about. You can come to one of our walk -in services. No appointment needed–just come in and have a free, single, confidential meeting with one of our counsellors at one of our convenient locations.

If you live outside Cambridge, Kitchener and Waterloo, we offer this same service by appointment. Call us at 519-749-2932 to arrange an appointment.

Need more than a single session?

If the challenges you are facing run deeper than what we can address in a single session, that’s okay. Come and meet with us anyway. We can talk about follow-up sessions, a referral to a more intensive program, or something else if needed.

To start, access our Quick Access services.

Are you 18 or older? Contact Here 24/7 for service.

You can come alone if you are aged 12 up to your 18th birthday or if you are under 12 and have your parents’/caregiver’s consent.
