Help Stella's Place Save Lives

This petition had 902 supporters

Young adults are not getting the mental health care they need, with only 1 in 3 getting support, and 62 percent drop out of treatment early (Edland et al, 2002) . Our suicide rate is rising, and so many of us young adults are suffering on waitlists, trying to do it by ourselves or with only our family to support us. Stella's Place changes that.

Stella's Place is youth mental health organization that serves young adults (aged 16-29) in Toronto. It was co-designed with young people, their families, and professionals from all areas of mental health. They offer peer support, counselling, groups and many ways to help youth get their voices heard. It is amazing to go somewhere that listens to how you want to get better - and makes that happen. They are truly partners in the recovery of young people. Even though Stella's Place has made a huge impact in the lives of the young people like me, their future is not secure.

This petition is to show the Ontario government that young adults want stella's place to receive ongoing funding from the government to match the investment of private donors. So we can access the mental health care that understands us, builds with us, and walks alongside us. This is mental health care that works for us - as much as it works for the professionals. Sign the petition and help us secure the future of Stella's Place.
