On behalf of Mental Health and Addictions Minister Everett Hindley, Education Minister and Weyburn-Big Muddy MLA Dustin Duncan stated, “Today’s expansion of rapid counselling services to children and youth is an important part of our commitment to address mental health issues in Saskatchewan.” In order to improve the well-being of our communities throughout the province, it is essential to be able to quickly connect young people with the health services they require.

Envision Counselling Support Centre will offer the Rapid Access Counseling Program in each of the four communities. Kids and youth will be associated with any extra or progressing support they might require.

“We are so satisfied about the development of our Fast Access Directing project,” Imagine Guiding and Backing Center Inc. Chief Lynda Rideout said. ” The capacity to now offer this help to kids, youth and their parental figures in our networks is a genuine gift and will fundamentally affect the prosperity of Saskatchewan overall. We are incredibly thankful for the help from Family Administrations Saskatchewan and the Saskatchewan Service of Wellbeing.”

In all out this year, the area is giving Family Administrations Saskatchewan $3.2 million in yearly financing: $1.7 million in new financing for extending fast access advising administrations to kids and youth, and $1.5 million to offer continuous types of assistance to grown-ups and families in excess of 20 networks.
