Mental Health Resources for Youth

Are you not feeling like yourself? Feeling low, stressed out, worried, depressed, irritable or angry?

If you are in crisis, or feel like you are going to hurt yourself, call 911, go to the nearest Emergency Hospital or call the local Emergency Response Service.

Is this normal stress? Or do you need support to start feeling better? Start by asking yourself these questions:

  • Have I been feeling this way for a prolonged period of time?
  • Is how I’m feeling affecting my everyday life in a negative way?
  • Am I dealing with my problems in unhealthy ways?

If you answered yes to these questions or are unsure, consider talking to someone. It is understandable if you’re afraid to talk about these issues. Just remember that your mental health is just as important as your physical health.

You can start with texting (686868) or calling (1-800-668-6868) Kids Help Phone or ConnexOntario (1-866-531-2600) to find services in your area.

You can also work on skills to manage feelings of low mood, mild to moderate depression, anxiety, stress or worry through CMHA’s BounceBack program.

Mental health issues can be manageable and treatable health conditions. When you talk with others about how you feel, you may be taking a crucial first step towards a better life.
