A new provincially funded child and youth mental health navigation website, StressHacks, is now available to the public.
StressHacks adds to the province’s $2-million investment in a comprehensive, multi-year children and youth mental health strategy. The Manitoba Adolescent Treatment Centre (MATC), with support from the Manitoba government, developed the content and design with feedback from stakeholders. The site is geared toward children and youth between the ages of 10 and 24. It 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 site will also assist users to locate a range of local and provincial mental health supports and services by providing links, resources and a Services Map (geo-locator) developed by Manitoba eHealth.
