Youth Council

Hi !

Welcome to the national Youth Council’s page. This page is still very much a work in progress and we hope to have something better up soon.


We are a collection of awesome young people helping create the ACCESS network. We have youth representatives from 11 sites and hope to have more from other sites soon.


We contribute to the project by providing our expertise as young people to make sure everything ACCESS creates is more youth friendly. We all have lived experience with a mental health concern and are excited about making better resources for other young people and ourselves.


If you are interested in contacting the council, please email us. Just a heads-up: we are only recruiting members who live in the areas served by our sites at the moment.



To support Canadian youths and the ACCESS initiative by giving young people a voice in their mental health care.



The mission of the council is to create a real culture of change in youth mental health services by facilitating youth engagement across the ACCESS network.
