This morning, at the steps of the Ontario Legislature, MPP Michael Chan was delighted to participate with Ontario Health Minister Eric Hoskins in the official ribbon-cutting for Ontario’s first “Mobile Mental Health Bus” or “MOBYSS”.
This ground-breaking initiative by the CMHA York and South Simcoe is intended to bring services to youth aged 12-25. MOBYSS will travel across York Region and South Simcoe, parking where students gather such as malls, skate parks and schools. The team will include a nurse practitioner, a youth mental health worker and a peer support worker.
The MOBYSS received a $212,300 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and has the assistance of the York Regional Police (YRP) and other partners. Named MOBYSS for Mobile York South Simcoe, the clinic will have two meeting spaces and one lounge area where youth can drop in, helping to ensure privacy and confidentiality.
Say hello to MOBYSS.
