The Youth Mental Health Clinic (YMHC) is a clinic that offers wrap-around mental health services for youth. Services are offered by a multidisciplinary team consisting of Physicians, a Registered Social Worker, a Behavioural Health Consultant, youth therapists and Community Connectors. We are also connected to several agencies and resources in the community that make up a support network to help get you what you need (programs, recreation, food, housing, etc.).

Tansi — Cree | Oki — Blackfoot | Aba washded — Stoney (Nakota) | Ɂedlanet’e — Dene We respectfully acknowledge that we are on the traditional lands and territories of Indigenous people in Alberta. Generations from past, present and future. In doing so, we want to recognize the significance of our relationships with the land and the peoples who call this ‘home.’ As we reflect on supporting community design in the Youth Mental Health Hubs initiative, we will engage and embrace the teachings we are gifted from the first peoples regarding the history and connection to the land. As treaty people, we commit to a reciprocal relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous worldviews that honour and respect ways of knowing and being, ones that can be reflected and supported with the communities in building strong foundations for all youth and families to learn, work and play.
