From counselors to doctors, from occupational therapists to income assistance specialists, the skill and diversity of our team is the key to the centre’s success. Each team member uses their expertise and talents to connect a young person with the care, community resources, and fun activities they need to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.
Mental Health & Substance use Services
Our counsellors are available during drop-in hours to assist young people with their concerns. Counselling may lead to a referral for specialized service if the young person feels this would benefit them. These services are available Monday-Friday between 3:00pm-6:00pm.
Primary Care (Physical Health)
Our team of family doctors, nurse practitioners and nurses, specializing in youth health provide service on a drop-in and/or appointment basis.
Intensive Case Management
Our intensive case management team (ICM) accepts referrals for young people requiring more intensive and specialized mental health and substance use support. All young people receiving ICM services are connected with a case manager and psychiatrist specializing in youth/young adult mental health and substance use.
The ICM team members check-in with youth regularly on an out-reach basis to see what is going on in their life, develop care plans, and link them with the centre’s resources and community services to support their treatment and recovery goals.
Peer support workers with lived experience provide young people with help and support. They are available onsite during walk-in hours and can help young people on their path to wellness.
Our Income Assistance workers are able to help youth with their finances in a multitude of ways. These include supporting them with income assistance, disability applications or by explaining the many other services that young people may qualify for, such as employment training.
Please call ahead to find out when our income assistance worker is available or to book an appointment.
Foundry Vancouver Granville is partnered with Services to Adults with Developmental Disabilities (STADD), which provides the services of a STADD Navigator on-site.

The Navigator supports young people in building a personalized care plan that is unique to them, along with co-ordinating a supportive team of government and community service providers to assist them in reaching their goals.
