HUMBOLDT — Free, rapid access counselling services are now available to children, youth and their caregivers in Humboldt.
The launch is part of the Government of Saskatchewan's $1.7 million allocation to Family Service Saskatchewan to expand its Rapid Access Counselling Program.
Young people can access support for challenges ranging from stress and depression to family conflict, addictions and domestic violence.
Children and youth will be connected to any ongoing supports they may need.
PARTNERS Family Services is delivering rapid access counselling in Humboldt on behalf of Family Service Saskatchewan.
"We recognize the importance of access to timely services for improving outcomes for children and youth and their family units," PARTNERS Family Services Executive Director Hayley Kennedy said.
"Bringing in new child and youth-focused mental health services to the region will increase accessibility, and ultimately lead to healthier children and youth, and healthier communities."
Please check www.counsellingconnectsask.ca to find services near you, or book a virtual session through the website.
Since May, counselling services for children and youth have launched in Regina, Saskatoon, Weyburn, Estevan, Carlyle, Oxbow, North Battleford, Yorkton, Prince Albert and Moose Jaw. Additional communities will be announced in the coming weeks. Under the new Action Plan, rapid access counselling for children and youth will expand to all 24 locations of Family Service Saskatchewan where these services are currently available for adults.
