Who We Are
Wanasah is a new non-profit mental health agency created to address the urgent mental health needs of Black youth and their families in Regent Park and neighbouring areas, in downtown Toronto. We are a space where Black youth and their families recognize themselves.
Our programs and services are FREE for residents of Regent Park and neighbouring areas
All programs are developed through a trauma informed, Black centric, identity and ethnicity specific lens.
Inclusive services recognize the rights of all individuals to mutual respect and acceptance without any biases.
Wanasah considers our spiritual, emotional, social and mental factors, not only the diagnosis and symptoms.
Culturally safe services support individuals in drawing strength from their own identity and community.
What We Do
We provide counselling, case management and crisis supports to Black youth aged 12 to 25 and their families living in Toronto’s Regent Park. Our services incorporate an anti-racist, anti-Black racism and anti-oppression framework that integrates principles of intersectionality.
