Community Connectors

The Community Connector supports youth ages 11-25 and their families in accessing community and mental health support by working collaboratively with community stakeholders, social service agencies, and health care providers. The Community Connector acts as a living library of information regarding health and wellness resources that are available within the community, provincially, and virtually. Rather than calling 811 or searching the internet, the Community Connector can provide information to meet the individualized needs of youth.

 

Community Connectors can provide resource navigation support in the following areas:

 

  • Art/ recreation
  • Child intervention systems
  • Counselling/ psychology
  • Crisis/ Emergency Intervention
  • Cultural supports
  • Family resource networks
  • Food supports
  • Housing/ finance supports
  • LGBTQ2S+ supports
  • Mental health supports
  • Other community supports
  • Parenting education/supports
  • Primary health care
  • Sexual health/reproductive supports
  • Social work
  • Specialized medical/psychiatric supports (**connection to a healthcare provider may be needed)
  • Substance use disorder counselling/support

 

How to Refer

Referrals can be made to the Community Connector by the school administration, local physicians, or any community agency. Students and families may also self-refer by contacting the Community Connector directly. To make a referral or self-referral to a Community Connector please email the youth’s first and last name, contact information, and areas where support is needed.
