Foundry’s strategy of integrated community care breaks down silos and improves access to care for young people with complex mental health and substance use conditions. This approach bridges gaps in the system and allows young people to access all services that they need, simply by entering one door.
Like all Foundry Foundry Vancouver -Granville focuses on early intervention and provides mental health, substance use services, peer support, primary care and social services. It also provides navigation to specialized services, creating seamless pathways of care. Because the centre is located in the downtown core, youth coming through their door often need higher-intensity services, are precariously housed or have substance use concerns.
