Laing House is excited to be working in the Sackville/Bedford/Fall River area with partners IWK Health Centre, Nova Scotia Health Authority,& HRM Recreation!
Together with partners, Laing House offers a program called FriendZone – a youth-led initiative supporting young people to develop and maintain positive mental health. Youth have opportunities to work on their confidence in a group setting, to support peers in a healthy way, and to make friends.
FriendZone runs out of the Acadia Centre which is the developing site for the Sackville Youth Centre. This initiative led by Parks and Recreation in partnership with Laing House and other community service providers to create a safe and inclusive space for youth living with mental illness. When this centre opens, youth will be able to receive the support they need by participating in a variety of programs and build their capacity in peer-to-peer support which can extend beyond the space into high schools and other community spaces to support positive mental health.
