Our Team

The Stella’s Team is growing as we develop programs and engage young adults as facilitators and Peer Support Workers. We are committed to hiring staff with a diversity of experiences, and assertively hire young adults with lived experience of mental health issues.

We have an energetic, compassionate team. Each team member is committed to values-based practice, working collaboratively, with flexibility. We strive to create bold and responsive approaches to change the landscape of young adult mental health.

“What is really lovely about Stella’s Place is that when clinical counselling ends, it doesn’t have to mean the end of mental health support. Endings can be really difficult for folks in recovery. But here, I can introduce participants who have finished clinical counselling to a Peer Support Worker, or they can come to one of our art events or other drop-in programs. They can speak with our Navigator and connect with career counselling or with other relevant community services. They can just come and hang out in the café. So there is a really important sense of community that is built here that is unique.”
