Youth Net - Eastern Ontario Health Promotion Program

Youth Net is an Ottawa-based mental health promotion and illness prevention program run by youth, for youth. Since its beginnings in 1994, Youth Net has held focus groups involving over 3,000 youth from Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec. The philosophy is to listen to young people and connect them with each other while providing a safety-net of youth-friendly professionals when needed.

Youth Net is initiating 10 satellite programs across Canada in communities interested in working with youth to set up local programs.
