This program offers group counselling within four designated Toronto District School Board and Toronto Catholic District School Board schools.
CTYS Group services are offered to students who identify as needing support in creating and maintaining healthy relationships, dealing with anxiety, navigating difficult emotions, and building social skills.
A variety of activities, tools, and skills as well as opportunities for guided supportive conversation to strengthen communication & relationship skills, and build wellness are offered.
CTYS Group facilitators work in collaboration with school guidance, social work, teaching and child and youth staff to promote multi-sector support and continuity of care. Groups offered and module content are created with specific school populations’ needs in mind and in conversation with youth as well as school partners.
How do I access this service?
Access to this program is set aside for youth within the four TDSB and TCDSB schools. If you are unsure whether your school offers this program, please speak with your school’s guidance counsellor. Youth who are interested in a group experience, but are not in one of the four designated schools may want to check out the CTYS Community C2C Group. C2C Community Group Program
