Plan Y is a web-based Wellness Directory that acts like a mobile application and features youth-focused programs and services. This much-needed online resource came to life through the Pemberton CYMSHU Local Action Team (LAT). After surveying youth, the LAT learned that youth didn't know what programs and services were available and that the primary way they like to access information is online. Plan-Y serves the youth of the Pemberton, Líl̓wat Nation, Lower Lakes, Squamish-Lillooet Regional District Area C, and N’Quatqua communities.

These toolkits were created by the Salt Spring Island Local Action Team and have been adapted, with permission, by the Pemberton Local Action Team to include Pemberton and area resources.
The intent is that the Toolkits might provide additional information and support for children or youth struggling with suicidal ideation in our community, and for those that support them.
Each of the three kits are designed for a specific audience and contain information relevant to that audience; REACH OUT is for youth, SUPPORT is for parents and/or caring adults, and COMPASSION is for professionals like teachers, medical personnel and counsellors. . Kits contain information on supports and resources available within the community, crisis lines and apps that may help someone in crisis, self-management supports, information about risk factors and how to stay safe along with other information.
If you have any questions, please contact Rural and Remote Division of Family Practice.
