Thank you for your support!

Access to mental health care closer to home is vital to providing better futures for young people in our community. Seventy per cent of mental illness has its onset in childhood and adolescence. Early intervention and a proper support system equips youth with the coping tools and strategies they need and can also help offset a future mental health crisis in adulthood. Without services, their journey to recovery could take much longer.

Donor generosity ensures that RVH is able to continue providing the best possible care to children and youth in our region, in the moments that matter most.
