We, at the Dave Smith Youth Treatment Centre, are very excited and proud to be participating in this year’s Capital Pride Parade on Sunday August 25th.
June is pride month. It is important to remember that substance abuse and mental health do not discriminate. In fact, 2SLGBTQ+ youth are much more susceptible to mental health challenges and the effects of using substance abuse as a way to cope. The DSYTC is a safe place for a fresh start for everyone, no matter who you love or how you identify.
