R.I.T.E.S. Individual Counseling Program


The R.I.T.E.S. Individual Counselling Program is a culturally specific counselling service that supports Black and African Canadian youth between the ages of 13 and 17.

We understand that daily exposure to racism, discrimination, homophobia, violence and poverty can lower young people’s self-esteem, impact their mental health and compromise their potential for overall success. Using a strength-based and relational approach grounded in anti-oppression psychotherapy, this program supports young people to create goals and address issues such as their mental health concerns/ diagnoses, trauma, addictions, anger management, grief, and the impacts of anti-Black racism, Queer and Trans violence, and structural oppression.
