CMHA Durham has allotted this years funds for the Youth Activity Support Program (YASP). YASP provides at risk youth and their families with a mental health support system, access to a safe space, meals, and to technology as well as programs to develop skills for managing life's stresses and a foundation for independence..
Mental health struggles are challenging enough when you have the financial and familial support structures in place. YASP goes along way to fill in the gaps for those in our community who can truly benefit.
Over the years our participants have spoken out strongly in favour of putting our efforts towards youth mental health so we're very supportive of CMHA Durham's YASP program.
