Donna Green knew her daughter Stella was not alone in struggling with depression and anxiety. Looking for answers, Donna engaged an independent researcher and assembled a team of mental health experts and professionals. The group included representatives from Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and the Hincks Dellcrest Treatment Centre. They undertook a comprehensive investigation into effective interventions and programs available for young adults in Toronto, across Canada and internationally. The team engaged with young adults and families to get their input, and the program approach that is now becoming a reality was collaboratively developed.
Stella's Place Toronto is the prototype for young adult- driven, age-specific, community-based mental health services in Canada. During their first three years of operation, every aspect of the program was developed with young adults, outcomes were documented, and plans for expansion to other Canadian communities were implemented.
