New mental health centre for youth opens March 13
Overwhelming community support for The Summit provides families with three new services
Thanks to an incredible partnership among Alberta Health Services, the University of Calgary, the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation and thousands of generous donors, The Summit: Marian & Jim Sinneave Centre for Youth Resilience, Calgary’s first community-based mental health centre for young people, will open to families at 10 am on Monday, March 13.
Located at 1015 – 17 Street NW, the Summit will provide three new resources for kids, teens, and their families: the Owerko Family Walk In Services, the Tallman Family Treatment Services and the Ptarmigan Day Hospital. These services and other programs will provide mental health support for young people up to the age of 18 with the aim of helping them address issues as early as possible.
