At Atlantic Wellness, we believe that families, schools, communities, and government share the responsibility to ensure that youth have access to resources that promote optimal mental health and well-being. To do our part, we provide access to free and timely mental healthcare services to youth ages 12 to 21 in Southeastern New Brunswick. We also coordinate services between community partners such as family physicians and school guidance counsellors in order to provide better, seamless care. Since Atlantic Wellness opened in 2012, we have treated over 1200 youth and we continue to receive an average of four new referrals per day.
What People Are Saying
"The AWCC is such an amazing program! Not only have they helped me with my mental health, they’ve gone above & beyond and helped me with school; something I thought I would never be able to achieve again. They are such loving and caring people, it’s incredible. I don’t know where I’d be without them."
"Our therapist gave my tween a safe space to think out loud, to try on emotions, to be angry, to be sad; together they have concocted great plans and strategies for self-control and self regulation, my child has had an unconditional ally to guide her through this stage of self realization. "
"The team is amazingly supportive, welcoming and knowledgeable. We have received follow up emails, phone calls, things that although small have made us feel important (which matters a lot when you feel hopeless). I am confident that we will be ok as we have the support of the best group around."
