Why are you passionate about WES for Youth Online?
I am passionate about WFYO to honour my son Wes. Creating this organization was the only way I could move forward each day. It has been comforting to know that we are able to help young people with their mental health struggles and give them a safe space to connect with someone who knows how to help. It is my hope that we can continue to help the families of struggling youth along the way.
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.
