Why are you passionate about WES for Youth Online?
I am passionate about WES for Youth Online because I understand the value and vital importance the service plays, providing access to mental health counselling for youth in a format that is safe and easily utilized by them. I like others have dealt with my own mental health challenges and see how critical it is to have a service that allows easy access, confidentiality and helps to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health for a next risk demographic.
We provide an ongoing one-to-one connection with a professional counsellor. Our online counselling service allows youth to connect with a professional and qualiﬁed counsellor by self referral, to explore the issues being faced in a secure and online environment.
