The Regent Park Community Safety Action Plan, developed by the Regent Park Safety Network, contains a priority recommendation to map youth programming (including mental health programming) available in the neighbourhood.
The purpose of this youth-led project is to examine current programming and identify processes, protocols or responses which will support the “most vulnerable youth” in our community. Further, it will evaluate how all youth interventions operate in the neighbourhood and look to address the isolation of both vulnerable youth and youth workers in the neighbourhood.
This project has been developed in collaboration with the Regent Park Safety Network and local community agencies.
