107.5 KOOL FM & Rock 95
Supporting Children's Mental Health Services at RVH
|Only one in five young people get the help they need. That unacceptable, and why Rock 95 and 107.5 Kool FM are committed to bringing a Child and Youth Mental Health Inpatient Unit to the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre with our Young Minds Matter campaign. |
70% of mental health illness begins during childhood, yet the majority of our youth are not receiving the treatment they need. Most alarming about this gap in services is that sometimes young people are sent home or inappropriately admitted to inpatient adult psychiatric units.
We are working to change this. With your help, we can make a difference!
In 2018, Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre will open a comprehensive 8 bed inpatient Child and Youth Mental Health program for children and youth in our region.
The ministry of health has given RVH approval for annual operational funding for the program. Unfortunately, the government does not fund capital equipment costs; so we need the help of our community to outfit the space with the equipment that is essential to its success.
The team at Rock 95 and KOOL FM want to make sure the children and youth in our region have the services they urgently need; because Young Minds Matter.
