What we will provide:
As we are a start-up organization, supported through private donors, foundations and government grants, we are gradually building the full menu of peer support, clinical, wellness, employment, creative studio and recovery programs.
Our approach integrates peer support, clinical and recovery services to ensure that young adults have access to the personnel that can best assist them to identify and build on their strengths, and to meet self identified goals.
For information on what we offer please see information on specific programs that are currently available.
Clinical and Recovery Services
We offer structured opportunities for young adults to receive support, both online and in person, from peers who have lived experience of mental health issues. Peer supporters are graduates of the Peer Support Training Certificate program co-designed by young adults from Stella’s Place and CMHA Toronto, and delivered in partnership with George Brown College. Peer supporters have roles as online chat supporters, navigators, coaches and activity facilitators.
Young adult leaders and peer supporters at Stella’s Place offer a range of wellness and recovery education programs including WRAP, PeerZone, and facilitated group activities to support discovery, connection, wellness and recovery. Find out more about Peer Support.

Our Commitment to Outcome Evaluation
Since the first stage of program development, we have monitored and asked for feedback to ensure the engagement of young adults in all aspects of program development and delivery. This has allowed us to refine our engagement practices throughout our development.
Our Evaluation Framework has been developed with young adult research partners, research and evaluation experts and organizational leaders. Young adults have identified key outcomes they want to achieve including:
- Decrease in clinical symptoms and distress;
- Increase in self management/efficacy skills;
- Increased engagement in treatment and recovery process (with Stella’s Place community and personnel, connection with peers);
- Positive movement towards self-identified goals related to school, work and meaningful involvement in communities of choice.
Indicators, measures and targets have been developed and annual reporting will be included in the Stella’s Report Card. Ongoing collaboration with national initiatives in the young adult mental health has resulted in a strong network of providers who will learn from each other about strong and effective evaluation and quality improvement practices.
