MOBILE Health & Wellness Unit
Foundry Mobile will be BC’s first mobile youth mental health and wellness unit, which will launch in September 2020. Current funding is focused on spreading the word, letting youth in the Central Okanagan know that in fall 2020 health care services are brought to them, where they are – in their space.
This project is put in place with the idea in mind to bring the right services and delivering them at the right time and in the right place in order create positive change in a young person’s life. The goal is to provide young people barrier free access to services they need and to instil a foundation of self-advocacy for their own mental and physical health.
Foundry provides core health and wellness services and support to young people aged 12-24 and their families – online and through integrated service centres in seven communities across BC. Their uniquely holistic approach brings health care and social services under one roof to make it easier for young people to find help and support. The Blenk Family Fund proudly provides funds to Foundry on an ongoing basis.
