Rotary Club of North Bay President Jeff Rogerson presented a cheque for $5000 to Tammy Morison, President and CEO, North Bay Regional Health Centre Foundation today, in support of the Unit. The funding will be used to purchase items for Crisis Kits that are used in a newly adopted Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Model, a component of a patient’s discharge plan.
“The Rotary Club of North Bay has a history of generous support for children in our community and our hospital. During these unusual times, we are grateful the club is taking the opportunity to support the mental health care needs of children and youth. This impactful donation will go a long way in ensuring these young patients have the tools and resources they need for success”, stated Tammy Morison.
Dana Godin, Manager, Mental Health, CAMHU & AIPU, commented that, “COVID-19 is having an impact on our youth, their mental health and their families. We are seeing the physical, psychological and financial impacts on families and we recognize this will be a long road for many. This generous donation will allow us to have a positive impact on patient care while supporting patient transition into community upon discharge. Crisis Kits are one of the resources that help support a patient during their recovery.”
