Youth Voices, Youth Hope

YMHC is a community-based, youth-led charitable non-profit organization focused on youth, family and community engagement for mental health education, support, advocacy and change.

We advocate for needs-based, culturally sensitive, trauma-informed mental health supports, services and educational accommodations and direct funding to families to support young people with chronic mental health disabilities.

We believe that children and youth with mental health challenges have the right to be respected, supported and included in schools and communities.

We believe that children and youth have the right to mental health treatment and support services that are timely, effective and coordinated.

We believe that meeting the mental health needs of children and youth requires significant financial and professional  investment that is sustained throughout the young person’s schooling. Young people with mental health issues have much to contribute to society. It is our responsibility to allow that contribution to flourish.

We believe that children and youth benefit from close collaboration and shared responsibility among service providers, families, communities, educators, other professionals and government.

We believe that educational and healthcare supports must be coordinated to support the mental health needs of young people.

We believe that there should be accountability for the responses of societal systems and the people within the systems to the mental health needs of young people.
