Squamish charity Tantalus Wellspring Society is launching another initiative to improve the mental health of Sea to Sky folks.
The Squamish-based organization aims to make wellness available to everyone at an accessible cost.
With a Telus Friendly Futures Foundation grant, Tantalus Wellspring Society will provide subsidies to assist youth and their families and caregivers with the cost of counselling services in the Sea to Sky Corridor.
"The grant will be used to assist children, youth, and their families to access counselling — either individually or as a family — provided by the therapist of their choosing," reads a news release.
The subsidies will be paid directly to the therapist based on the rates recommended by the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors (BCACC).
The amount of the subsidy is determined by what the client identifies they need.
"Youth thrive within a circle of support, and Tantalus Wellspring Society seeks to ensure that counselling supports are youth-centred and include family/caregivers."
