London launches addiction, mental health support for young people
London youth battling addiction and mental health issues are getting help.
London Health Sciences Centre, partnering with Youth Opportunities Unlimited, will launch Cornerstone Counselling. The pilot program, launched by LHSC and delivered at YOU, will offer young people aged 16 to 25 with mental health and addiction support.
The program will see a team of health professionals, including a peer support worker, social worker, addiction counsellor and psychiatrist, working together to help those at risk.
The program will also partner with Canadian Mental Health Association-Middlesex and Addiction Services of Thames.
The program will be officially launched this afternoon at the Youth Opportunities Unlimited office at 332 Richmond St.
