Reaching Youth Initiative Fund.
MENTAL HEALTH & ADDICTIONS
The Burin Peninsula Health Care Foundation Mental Health and Addictions campaign began in 2017, and focuses on both increasing access to, as well as enhancing program delivery of mental health and addictions services for residents on the Burin Peninsula. To date, walk-in clinics have been established in Marystown/Burin, Grand Bank, St. Lawrence and Boat Harbour regions through the support of BPHCF fundraising initiatives. In addition, three schools on the Burin Peninsula - John Burke High School (Grand Bank), Pearce Junior High School (Burin), and Marystown Central High School (Marystown) - have received funding to establish therapeutic spaces, or "Comfort Coves" within their schools, as well as to purchase laptops and video conferencing technologies to virtually connect students to mental health resources within Eastern Health.
The Reaching Youth Initiative Fund is currently accepting proposals from schools on the Burin Peninsula, to a maximum of $10,000 per school, to continue to expand access to mental health and addictions services for youth in the region.
Deadline to Apply: December 16, 2022
