Vaughan is located within the Toronto metropolitan area and is highly interested in family-affairs, children, and teenagers. For example, this is the only city in Ontario’s municipality to have a Youth City Councilor, which is appointed every six months and represents the youth of the community, a mother’s dream. The city is also known for its cultural diversity and sense of community. Great for the family athletic fanatic, the cultural of the city is intertwined with an emphasis on sports with attractions like The Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame and Museum, which is sure to be entertaining for children, teenagers, as well as adult family members. Sometimes life can grow into a tornado of turmoil, and this is when Christian counseling therapists come into focus, able to help calm life's storms. Some of the other attractions in the city consist of the Boyd Conversation Area, a park that is located between Vaughan and Kleinburg and provides a great location for a family outing to enjoy the weather with a family picnic. In terms of education, there are multiple schools available including Maple Crest Private and Pine Grove Public.1

Mental Health in Vaughan

Dieting is a common concern for young females and adult women alike. Nearly 20,000 young women live in Vaughan. The startling figures from a recent study indicates that 27 percent of girls in Ontario, including Vaughan, from the ages of 12-18 engage in problematic food and weight behaviors. For adolescent girls, eating disorders are the third most common chronic disorder, with the age of onset between 14-25 years of age.2

The Canadian Mental Health Association of York and South Simcoe provides counseling services to Ontarians of all ages, and they treat eating disorders as well. The agency´┐Żs psychotherapy program is designed to help people who suffer from serious mental illness to help them cope with day-to-day living. Counseling services are offered in groups for eating disorders as well as depression, concurrent disorders and bipolar disorder.

Current Education

More information about dealing with eating disorders is available through the National Eating Disorder Information Center. The website points users to helpful local resources, educational articles and ways to get involved to help others suffering with these conditions. NEDIC is a nonprofit agency that provides resources on all types of eating disorders and weight preoccupations. Their goal is to educate the public and raise awareness and acceptance. The agency also runs a helpline staffed from 9 am to 9 pm Monday through Friday (Eastern Standard Time) that can be reached at 866-633-4220.4
