Access Centers

Young Adult (YA) Access Centers are unique community spaces that allow young adults with mental health concerns to access services and supports in a timely and effective manner.

The services are free and available to all young adults.  No diagnosis is required.  Centers are affirming and inclusive spaces that promote an environment that specifically and effectively engages Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) young people.

  • Peer support
  • Social activities
  • Linkages to healthcare, housing, employment, education, and other resources
  • Mental health & substance misuse supports
  • Individual support to identify and achieve goals in critical areas such as mental well-being, education, employment, and housing
