WINNIPEG — The Manitoba government has launched a new website to help children and youth in need of mental health support.
StressHacks.ca is part of the province’s multi-year children and youth mental health strategy, providing resources to locate a range of local and provincial mental health supports and services by providing links, resources and a services map developed by Manitoba eHealth.
The site’s content was developed by the Manitoba Adolescent Treatment Centre (MATC) and is geared toward children and youth between the ages of 10 and 24.
The site “provides quick suggestions, or hacks, that will help individuals to decide if and when they need help, how to find help, and offer self-help tips and resources,” the province said in a release.
Mental Illness Awareness Week is October 4-10 in Manitoba.
