In 2007 a small team of psychiatrists at St Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver decided to take a completely different approach to helping young people aged 12-24. Their focus is on wellness, empowering young people to live a balanced and fulfilling life.

FOUNDRY offers health and wellness resources, services and supports for young people across British Columbia. However, the Info and Tools on the website offer self-checks, tips, tools, resources and stories that would be relevant anywhere.

The FOUNDRY website offers:

  1. Info and Tools:
    • Mental Health
    • Substance Use
    • Healthy Living
    • Tough Topics (Self-injury, Suicide)
  2. Where to Get Support
  3. Supporting Others

The services were created with, and for, young people and their families.
