Laing House Yarmouth

Welcome to Laing House Yarmouth!

Laing House is a non-profit organization with a focus on empowering young people aged 16-29 who have lived mental health experience.  

Our Model: Come as You Are 
We create inclusive social hubs where our members can access the resources they need for their mental health recovery and enjoy the benefits of prticipating in our powerful peer support network.  

Our Laing House teams work with our youth members to design holistic plans for goal setting, mastery of life skills, and building resilience. We also strive create environments that foster curiosity, confidence and a sense of community. 

Our service menu reflects best practice approaches linked to employment, education, community navigation, healthy eating, recreation and creative arts. To respond to the evolving needs of the people we support, many of our programs are co-designed and co-led by our members. We also work closely with partners from the health care system, community-based organizations and local businesses to ensure a well-rounded approach to learning and engagement. 

We have a small but mighty team, please get in touch if you would like to connect:
