This is an initiative funded by the Ministry of Child and Youth Services. The Aboriginal Youth Mental Health & Addictions Counselor (AYMHAC) provides early identification of issues and subsequent counseling, skill development, and support services to vulnerable children and youth. Children and youth who are experiencing familial, emotional, behavioural, and cultural issues that significantly limit their capacity to function effectively in their family, school, or community are eligible for services.
Counselling and Outreach Services include, but not limited to:
- Supporting children and youth to succeed in school or in educational/employment programs.
- Strengthening relationships and connections between children and youth and their families and community.
- Promoting healthy lifestyle choices for children, youth and their families.
The AYMHAC works with Chippewas of Nawash children ages 7-11 and youth ages 12-18, on and off reserve. Their families are encouraged to attend some sessions if possible.
