We’re a walk-in mental wellness hub with something for everyone.
Huddle Broadway is here for youth – and we want you to feel so welcome. Whether you come to chill with friends, have coffee, or to chat about anything you want with our staff, we’re here for healthy, helping conversations when you’re ready. We offer mental and physical health services for youth. This includes Indigenous cultural support and land-based teaching, Safe Space programming for 2SLGBTIA+ youth, harm reduction and safe use kits – plus a foosball table, condoms, snacks, free Wi-Fi, places to charge your phone, and so much more.
Our services are free of cost and free of judgement. Get the help you need on your terms, in whatever way makes you most comfortable.
We combine Indigenous knowledge and land-based teaching with Western medicine, creating a helpful and mindful approach to wellness for all. Come meet Elders, learn about medicines and ceremonies, and connect with the community!

Creating Our Space
The Huddle Broadway Youth Advisory Committee in partnership with the Youth Ambassador Advisory Squad from the Manitoba Advocate for Children and Youth, and Take Pride Winnipeg spent more than 6 months collaborating together to create a mural that brings so much meaning to our cultural space and Indigenous cultural programming. As a part of the Re-Right Project, the mural represents the United Nations Convention Rights of the Child Article 6: You have the right to not only live, but thrive! Youth met with many Elders and Knowledge Keepers as they tried to express the importance of thriving and mental health through an Indigenous cultural lens. Local artist, Jeannie Red Eagle, listened and connected with youth and together, to breathe life and spirit into this amazing painting. After painting with Jeannie, our youth and other community members, this space is proudly and uniquely ours at Huddle Broadway. Many Miigwetches to all who made this a reality.
Inspired by each wall of the mural and what each direction represents with mental health, two Indigenous youth musicians, created this song to help us reflect on how our mental health is tied to the land, ourselves, our physical health, and our spirit.
