North Vancouver centre offers one stop shop for youth wellness (Foundry)
The idea behind Foundry North Shore is to bring more than 15 existing programs and services for youth and their families under one friendly roof.
The centre at 211 West First Street in North Vancouver has a team of doctors, nurses, therapists, mental health, substance use and social workers co-ordinating their services for free to youth aged 12 to 24.
“Many of the services are the same, but one of the critical key differences is we've come together, and we're working in a seamless, coordinated way,” said Foundry North Shore manager Tanis Evans.
