Foundry Kelowna looking to go mobile (Foundry)
Foundry Kelowna wants to initiate a mobile health care service by the fall of 2019.
The youth health care service centre established over a year ago at 1815 Kirschner Rd. would only be the third service of its kind in Canada.
The concept is currently being discussed and explored with Foundry’s community partners through March, followed by a program development and design plan worked on between April and August, then the program rollout later this fall.
The Canadian Mental Health Association branch in Kelowna, the agency that operates The Foundry, had representatives make a presentation to the education and student service committee of the Central Okanagan School District, which has been an active supporter of the youth health care initiative.
