About UsAbout Stella's Place
We are THE place for young adults in Toronto, aged 16 to 29, who are experiencing mental health challenges to get the support they need.
The Stella’s Place ‘menu’ includes peer supports, clinical, online, employment, wellness, and recovery services as well as opportunities to explore your creative self through studio programs.
The goal of this holistic approach is to help young adults learn skills, find connection and become empowered to manage their own health.
We are currently Toronto-based and provide much-needed support to more than 500 young adults and their families each year.
What makes us different from other mental health services?
Our focus is on young adults age 16 – 29. Our front door is a street-front engaging hub that looks and feels like a café and where young adults can find all the support they need in one place.
Our programs are co-designed by professionals and young adults. Young adults serve as partners at every level of the organization, not only designing, but also delivering and evaluating all of our services.
At Stella’s Place, Peer Support is a core service so that young adults can get guidance and coaching from those who have already been there. Our programs are comprehensive, and respond to the whole person: their mental health, their physical health and wellbeing, their use of substances, their gender identity, their social and family connections, their creative interests, and the skills and strengths they bring to living, learning and working roles.
We partner with community-based organizations that are committed to changing the experience of young adults who are struggling with mental health challenges.
What do we believe in at Stella’s Place and what are we here to do?

At Stella’s Place there is a community of people similar to me, a community that will keep growing, and I haven’t found that anywhere else. – Stella’s Place Community Member
