New youth centre for North Shore launched
A new integrated youth centre to counter mental health and substance abuse was launched on the North Shore on Thursday.
Foundry North Shore (FNS), for youths from 12 to 24 years of age, will bring all existing services under one roof, so families and young people can access a one-stop shop for primary care, mental health, substance use and social services.
It will be located at 211 West 1st in North Vancouver, and is expected to be operational by late spring.
