The New Outlook Day Treatment Program is a structured Section 23 Classroom program in partnership with the Toronto District Scholl Board (TDSB) for youth experiencing significant challenges with their mental health. The program uses an integrated model that focuses on academic preparation, life and social skills. The purpose of the program is to provide academic support, assist students as they transition to another academic setting or an employment opportunity, as well as, wellness and life skills programing.
Students set personal goals in collaboration with program staff to address both their academic and mental health concerns. An on-site teacher provides an innovative special education program for students under the age of 21 that allows them to earn high school credits. For those young adults between 21 – 24 years of age the primary focus is specific to wellness and recovery.
Youth and young adults 16-24 years of age, must reside in the city of Toronto, a confirmed Axis-1 diagnosis, connection with a case manager /social worker, as well as ongoing psychiatric/medical care is necessary for eligibility.
