Youth Health Centre (Inner City Youth Program, St. Paul's Hospital)
A centre has opened in downtown Vancouver to help at-risk young people get back on the right track.
It's called the Granville Youth Health Centre and it will serve up to 1,200 young people under the age of 24 by the year 2016. They can walk in from the street and find primary care, mental health services, counseling, even get a psychiatric assessment.
Health Minister Terry Lake says young people won't even need to have MSP coverage.
