Our healthcare teams are committed to providing the best possible and most compassionate care to our community. Through the support of donors, special training for our emergency department staff in areas such as suicide response and trauma-informed care is being provided. We are sincerely grateful for our supportive community who recognize the importance of mental health and value the training that is required to meet the needs of everyone coming to our hospital for care.

May 7 is a special day within #MentalHealthWeek as it focuses on the mental health needs of children and youth. We are grateful that some of the front-line training funded by the Foundation through generous donors has been tailored specifically to address what children and youth require.
