CMHA North and West Vancouver Branch would like to give a big thank you to Pacific Blue Cross Health Foundation for their generous donation to support programming for youth on the North Shore.
Thanks to their contribution, we were able to pilot our Steps program to youth ages 19-29.
After successfully hosting Steps for the 13-17 age group, we are expanding to focus on youth 19+. We recognize that these youth are often under-served and can become isolated as they are transitioned out of youth-specific services and into adult services that are expensive or not appropriate for their needs.
It’s through community partnerships like this that we are able to create new programs and grow our existing programming to better serve our vision of mental health for all. Thank you PBC!
