Four Prince George counselling services are receiving their share of $4.2 million from the provincial government.

The Canadian Mental Health Association, Carrier Sekani Family Services, Central Interior Native Health Society, and Prince George Native Friendship Centre are among 49 counselling services receiving the funding.

“When people make the brave decision to seek help for their mental health and well-being, we want them met with care, regardless of their location or pocketbook. In the early days of the pandemic, community counselling groups helped us transform mental-health care delivery and, with our funding, reached thousands of people,” said Sheila Malcolmson, Minister of Mental Health and Addictions.

“I am grateful to these community counselling agencies for the vital work they do to meet people in their time of need and to build trust and ongoing connections. With today’s funding announcement, that care continues and broadens.”

According to the province, this funding will extend support for these organizations until March 31st 2023.
