Through participation in activities, our youth become aware of the options available to them for support, education and training. All programs, activities and services are funnelled through 5 main program areas.

LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR HEALTH & WELL-BEING
CPDYC has developed a new partnership with the CPHC Family Health Team. Community and Primary Health Care - Mobile Unit provides FREE primary health care to those people who do not have access to a family physician or nurse practitioner.
Services provided range from: blood pressure checks; blood testing; immunizations; prenatal care; smoking cessation counseling; information of healthy life style (i.e. physical activity, exercise and weight loss); and physical assessments, treatment and diagnosis of acute and chronic conditions.
A Nurse Practitioner and team in the Mobile Unit (health clinic) visit the Youth Centre on Mill Street once a month to see anyone who needs to discuss health issues with a professional.
