Integrated Supports for Yukon Youth

Dedicated to youth aged 12 to 24 years, ISYY provides a one-door access to government services after regular business hours.

Information and services available at ISYY covers the spectrum of health and social supports and services available from government. Depending on need, staff and service partners operating out of ISYY will provide individuals with information on where and how to access required supports and services.  The ISYY is a collective space where government services providers will deliver services, programs and workshops.

This two-year pilot project is part of the Yukon Mental Wellness Strategy 2016-2026. The objective is to help identify an effective service delivery model which can be replicated in other parts of Yukon.
