Thank you to RBC Foundation for 9 years of Mental Health Support

RBC Foundation’s commitment to our Mental Health Program enables youth who come through our doors to have timely access to counselling, diagnoses and specialized care from our in-house mental health professionals. In fact, youth in urgent need of more complex mental health care can even be fast-tracked to see psychiatrists and other specialists instead of waiting for months.

The Mental Health Program at Covenant House is an essential service we provide as approximately 40% of our young people have been diagnosed with a mental illness and many more have undiagnosed mental health issues, both of which can be significant barriers to coping and leaving life on the street.

We are truly grateful to BC Manager of Community Investment, Carmen Ryujin for her belief in the work we do and to Branch Manager, Michelle Kerr and her team who came out to visit our youth spaces and present a cheque for $50,000. Thank you RBC!
