Youth Health Centre

For youth aged 12-24

An open door and an open ear.

The Alex Youth Health Centre provides a safe and supportive space for youth to address their needs with the help of our caring and trust-inspiring team. We invite youth aged 12-24 from all backgrounds into our friendly, relaxed atmosphere to access a variety of free services on a drop-in basis.

Upholding the principles of non-judgment, compassion, and confidentiality, we guide youth in the process of reclaiming their lives, working through challenges, and cultivating healthy and successful futures.

  • family physicians and medical resources
