N.B. Contributing To Investment In Mental Health Research For Youth
May 05th, 2016
Premier Brian Gallant says the money will help fund adapted, improved and more responsive research activities.
The province will provide $500,000 of $2.5 million in total funding for a research chair on youth mental health at Universite de Moncton.
It will also give $2.5 million to support a $5.5-million research project with the Canadian Institutes for Health Research for youth and adolescent mental health.
The initiatives are part of an investment of more than $8.5 million over the next five years.
Gallant says they also align with strategies being developed by other government departments and the creation of a centre for youth with complex needs in Campbellton.
