Chatham-Kent, ON

ACCESS Open Minds Chatham-Kent is the only ACCESS site in Ontario funded through a national research grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Graham Boeckh Foundation. Our site serves a small urban centre and surrounding rural areas. Chatham-Kent has a population of approximately 108,000 and it includes two First Nations communities. The new youth hub brings together existing community partners who are committed to working in a new collaborative and innovative way, offering a “one-stop shop” for young people aged 11-25 and their families looking for mental health support.


Our doors are officially open for service, conveniently located at the former YMCA in downtown Chatham. Our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Call, e-mail or drop in today!
