About Foundry Langley

Supporting Youth

Our young people are full of promise and potential, but face challenges to their wellness – including higher rates of mental illness and substance use than any other age group.

In Canada, an estimated 70 per cent of mental health problems begin during childhood or adolescence.

While evidence-based treatments and counselling services are available in BC they are not easy to access. Langley youth are struggling to navigate the system, and wait lists and stigma prevent youth from getting the services they need at the time they need it.

While one in five young people aged 15 to 24 report experiencing mental illness or substance use problems, fewer than 25 per cent of those in need receive appropriate services.

The need is urgent.

Young people who don’t know where to go often resort to walk-in clinics, their local emergency departments or worse - go nowhere and suffer in silence.

The solution is here.

Foundry Langley will offer young people 12-24 access to mental health and substance use support, primary care, peer support and social services.

  • Foundry is an entry point for Langley’s existing services.
  • Foundry will help fill gaps with new or quick access services. For example, Langley needs more in-the-moment counselling and psychiatry support. Foundry Langley looks to address this need.
  • Foundry will provide youth drop-by services like quick access to a GP for something as simple as a cold, sexual/mental health or peer counselling, or access food prep and other life skills learning opportunities.
  • Foundry won’t just take care of the youth. Anyone in need of help navigating challenging issues that youth deal with will be welcome at Foundry Langley.
