WHAT IS MiND-AID?
MiND-AID is a needs-based, client-centered, cost-free local service, providing navigation assistance and support to young persons, who are looking for help on their journey to mental wellness. MiND-AID is a registered Charity and as such is funded by donations, grants and funding from several sources. We launched in the fall of 2020 thanks in part to Government of Canada's Emergency Community Support Fund, through the Muskoka Community Foundation and the United Way Simcoe Muskoka, and because of the support of Muskoka Victim Services.

WHY IS MiND-AID NEEDED?
Young people face several barriers when trying to access the help they need. Many only get care through a hospital E.R. once they reach a crisis point. Tragically, some young people never access the supports they require.
