Kids’ Mental Health
Helping young people from across the Fraser Valley
Your support makes a difference for young people with mental health concerns from communities across the Fraser Valley. Donations enable our mental health team to provide state-of-the-art facilities for children and adolescents who need care at Surrey Memorial Hospital, as well as funding innovative programs that help young people recover and stay well.
One in seven people will experience mental health concerns during their child or adolescent years. The impact is significant in the Fraser Valley, where there are more young people than anywhere else in the province.
For children and adolescents, it’s critical to identify potential mental health concerns as early as possible and take action. Fraser Health’s child and youth mental health programs span everything from wellness and early intervention, to specialized outpatient and inpatient care.
Surrey Memorial Hospital has three specialized inpatient/day programs for young people from communities across the Fraser Valley: the new Cloverdale Paint Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Stabilization Unit (CAPSU); the Adolescent Psychiatry Unit; and the Adolescent Day Treatment Program.
Most recently, donor support helped to create CAPSU, the only unit of its kind in the Fraser Valley. Funding is currently needed to support specialized programs—some of them involving sports, music or the arts—that help young people receiving care at the hospital to recover from their illness and build life skills that can help them stay well.
