Asking for help isn’t always easy. But getting help should be. That’s what Huddle is all about—here for youth.
Welcoming. Hopeful. Inclusive.
Passing through the doors at Huddle is like walking into a reassuring hug.
It’s a place where youth age 12-29 can be themselves and feel safe. A place of compassion and community, hope and healing.
Whether youth choose to connect with an Elder or Knowledge Keeper, nurse practitioner, or psychologist, help of all kinds can be found here—all under one friendly roof.
Helping youth improve their mental health means working smarter together.
Navigating the health care system to find the right supports can be difficult and overwhelming. Young people can easily fall through the cracks.
That’s why our communities need Huddle, so pathways to mental health care, addiction support, primary care, and other social services are clear.
Huddle is an innovative, brand-new approach to youth health care in Manitoba. It’s a one-stop shop for health and mental health care, youth services, community events, fun activities, and so much more.
Such a transformative space would only be possible with funding from the Government of Manitoba, together with United Way Winnipeg donors and other philanthropic partners.
What are “integrated youth services” anyway?
- A way to bring youth-centred services under one roof, so they’re low barrier and easy to find.
- Tailored support to meet the unique needs of youth, instead of one-size-fits-all.
- Caring spaces where young people don’t have to repeat their stories over and over.
- An empowering form of care where youth have a voice and lead the way in finding help that’s right for them.
- A place filled with caring people, shared meals, group workshops, and culturally-sensitive support.
