'One-stop shop’ for youth mental health (Dr. Steve Mathias)

A new “one-stop shop” where Victoria youth can get help for physical, mental-health and addictions issues marks an important step toward a seamless system of care for young people, advocates say.

Foundry Victoria, which officially opened Tuesday at 818 Douglas St., offers walk-in access to a range of services all under one roof. It’s the sixth such centre to open across B.C. with five more in development.

Dr. Steve Mathias, Foundry’s executive director, said the centres offer youth immediate help if they walk through the door.
