Resource Feature: Stella’s Place
At first glance it seems like a cafe on the street, but the Stella’s Place ‘menu’ includes peer support, as well as clinical, online, employment, and recovery services. Wondering why?
Stella’s Place is actually a Toronto-based resource that provides mental health support to young adults, aged 16 to 26. Their goal is to have a holistic approach to mental health in young adults, and they even supplement their services with creative opportunities and studio programs.
Much like mindyourmind, the Stella’s Place programs are co-designed and delivered alongside these youth. Their mission is to help people learn new skills, find meaningful connections, and become empowered to manage their own mental health.
The Stella’s Place physical space is temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but they’re still offering some great programming online! There are virtual options for intake appointments, family doctor and psychiatrist visits, drop-in counselling sessions, peer-to-peer support, employment advice, and even arts-based studio groups.
I know I’m impressed by all that Stella’s Place has to offer, and I hope you check them out too. What an amazing organization!
