Delisle Youth Services (DYS) collaborates with children, youth, families and community partners to provide innovative, adaptive and intensive support services.
DYS envisions supportive communities in which children, youth and families belong and realize their potential. We are an established, accredited, child and youth mental health multi-service agency with proven results and award-winning staff.
We operate a range of programs and services, including:
We also act as a single point of entry into residential services in the Greater Toronto Area for children and youth with mental health issues or complex special needs. This comprehensive interaction gives us a unique overview of the city's residential programs, which in turn enables us to work closely with community planners and government funders to advocate for and plan better services on behalf of the youth and families of Toronto.
All of our programs are collaborative, providing opportunities for youth and families to direct their own treatment, and empowering them to take an active role whether in private counselling sessions or public programming. Where appropriate, we refer clients to other organizations for employment training, educational opportunities, and social skill groups.
Whether we're acting as advocates, or providing services on a one-on-one basis, our involvement is rooted in compassion and integrity. This means responding to clients in a timely manner, working with them to develop individual plans, employing creative problem solving, and building relationships founded on trust.
We have provided thousands of young people with counselling, care and, perhaps just as importantly, with hope.
At Delisle, we strive to meet youth where they live. One of the way we do this is through a partnership with London-based youth mental health website MindYourMind. Visit our Youth Media Hub to check out some of the great games and tools our youth have created with MindYourMind.
