Day Program

Overview

The New Outlook Day Program is an Education and Community Partnership Program (ECPP) delivered together with the Toronto District Secondary School (TDSS) for youth experiencing complex mental health challenges. The program uses an integrated model to address wellness and recovery goals, while supporting young people to continue with their academic credits. The purpose of the program is to support students in developing the skills necessary to successfully transition to another academic setting and/or vocational opportunities, through the provision of life-skills and wellness-based programming.

All program participants develop wellness goals, in collaboration with program staff, to address their respective academic and/or mental health needs. These goals are reviewed on an ongoing basis and revised in consideration of participants’ evolving needs and skills.

For participants under the age of 21, an on-site TDSS teacher provides an innovative special education program to support students in continuing with their high school credits.

For participants 21 to 24 years of age, support is available to address wellness and recovery goals, while planning for transition to appropriate educational and/or vocational opportunities.
