Please refer to the following link about how to support student mental health during the COVID-19 response
Due to the current state of emergency in Ontario, we have suspended face-to-face contact in an effort to keep everybody well and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Our in-person services at the Haliburton Youth Hub have been cancelled until further notice. If you are in need of Primary Care, our Nurse Practitioner can reach you by phone. If you are seeking mental health and addictions supports, our counsellors are still available by phone or zoom. If you need either of these services, please call or text our cell phone at 705-306-5199. It will be monitored between the hours of 8:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be able to put you through to the appropriate person.
We want to ensure that youth are all best supported during this time. Currently, counsellors will be available from 8:30am-4:30pm Monday to Friday by phone. If you are in need of mental health support outside of those hours, you can contact Four Counties Crisis at 866-995-9933 or Kids help phone at 1-800-668-6868 or text CONNECT to 686868.

This video is a work in progress by the youth of the Haliburton Youth Wellness Hub. As the Hub evolves, and as the youth explore film making, so will the video evolve to tell this story.
