There is More Work to do
One in five young Canadians, from all walks of life, experience mental health and/or substance use issues. Of this group, only 25% of youth will receive the services they need to live their best life. This means, of the more than 30,000 youth in the Central Okanagan, about 6,000 have a mental health or substance use problem and 4,500 are not getting the care they need. Too often, young people and their families don’t know where to go for help. We must continue to ensure we can meet the local need and fund future program innovation at Foundry Kelowna. We can do it – together.
