Engaging Youth

National Youth Action Council

National Youth Action Council

NYAC brings together a national community of young people, including those with lived experience, who are advocates for youth experiencing mental health and substance use challenges. NYAC increases youth engagement in program and research activities, in the development of youth-friendly resources, and in consultations within mental health and substance use services and systems.


A system for mental health and substance use that can be easily accessed, navigated and shaped by Canadian youth of all backgrounds and identities.

A country that is free of the stigma surrounding mental illness and substance use and embraces open dialogue about youth mental wellness.
