What We Offer

360º Wellness

There is now a lot of evidence to support a clear connection between exercise and improved mental and cognitive health. Exercise, mindfulness, and yoga can be helpful for young adults experiencing mood and anxiety difficulties or any kind of stress. Getting involved in these activities in a supported group setting can also help people find friends and a sense of community. Understanding these links between good physical heath and overall wellness, the Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNJCC) and Stella’s Place joined forces to develop and offer the ONTrack Program. Everything we do at Stella’s Place involves co-design. Young adults, with support from both organizations, designed the ONTrack program.

This evidence-based, peer-supported fitness, recreational, wellness and physical literacy program is offered free to young adults aged 16 to 29 with moderate mental health challenges and mood disorders. Young adults identified a combination of activities that they thought many others would enjoy. They found a balance between wellness activities such as yoga and mindfulness, fitness activities in the gym, and team-based recreational sports. The programs are delivered by highly qualified trainers from the MNJCC. There is also peer support – a young adult with lived experience will help you get comfortable and familiar with the space, and is there if you run into any difficulty or just need some support to keep you onTRACK.

Additional wellness programs to support healthy living will be offered at Stella’s Place, including our go FRESH nutrition program (offered in collaboration with our food partner, FRESH), and mindfulness, yoga and physical health supports. Check our schedule of events to see current wellness programs offered.
