Our Values and Service Delivery Philosophy
At Peterborough Youth Services we believe that…
How to Access our Services
Youth and Families are encouraged to call PYS themselves to access our services. When you call PYS (705-743-1681), we will gather some basic information and then you will decide if you want to have an intake for our clinical counselling services or if meeting with a Community Response Team member or one of our Youth Outreach Workers (either in the community or at the office) would be a better fit.
Intake meetings are either face to face or virtual and they last an hour to an hour and a half. This is a time to talk about why you feel you would like counselling and to learn about PYS and how we work. Sometimes, the intake worker can help you with something in this meeting, but it may also be that it makes more sense to gather some initial information and you wait until you have your own counsellor to begin to talk about what is on your mind.
