Cowichan Young Carers Program
The Cowichan Young Carers Program provides support, information, education and advocacy to youth in a caregiving role to a family member. Youth providing care for loved ones are at risk of depression, anxiety, increased substance use, and difficulties in school and social life. We provide one-on-one support, support groups, information and connection to community resources. We also offer education and advocacy for youth when appropriate. We offer workshops twice a year on youth wellness, leadership and empowerment. Our First Nations Youth Facilitator provides support to First Nations youth caregivers. This program also provides information and education to youth workers, schools, social workers, and other professionals about young carers and how to identify and support them,
