Stella’s Place provides free mental health services for young adults ages 16 to 29. We have a holistic menu of programs, including peer support, clinical services, employment support, wellness, art, and recovery programs. We work to help young adults learn skills, build community and be empowered to manage their own mental health.

What Makes Us Different

Peer Support

Young adults can get guidance and coaching from those who have been there.

Co-Design

Young adults serve as partners, not only designing, but also delivering and evaluating our programs.

Low-Barrier

All of our services are free of charge, with many drop-in services that can be accessed day of.

What’s New

An animated graphic of a film reel scrolling, revealing text and images. Above and below the film strip a heading reads "Get Reel Film Fest" and in the film strip it says "June 6 to 10, 2022. Tickets on sale now, full lineup announced." It then scrolls through screenshots of the films, until rewinding all the way back to the beginning and starting over again.

We are back for the second year — bigger and better, with a rich and varied programme that will spark conversations about mental health, encourage reflection and help-seeking and celebrate the artistic talent of our community.
