Atlantic Wellness Community Center Opening Doors for Youth

10/05/2016

Atlantic Wellness Community Center and its Open Doors program, offer free and timely mental health care to youth aged 12 to 21, with the center coordinating services between important stakeholders such as family physicians and school guidance counselors in providing better, seamless care.

Open Doors is helping to reduce wait times for youth seeking mental health services in south-eastern New Brunswick, with a client’s first appointment scheduled within 14 days of initial contact.

This is the second year the Foundation has supported this program, bringing our funding to $80,000.
