To Whom it May Concern:

RE: Canadian Mental Health Association Pathways Clubhouse in Victoria

I am pleased to provide a letter of support to the "Moms Like Us" Group who are working on establishing a CMHA Clubhouse Model outreach program in the Victoria Area.  As the MLS of Oak Bay - Gordon Head, I know personally how valuable these services are for youth who face the challenge and stigma of mental illness.  Young people need a safe place to go where they feel a sense of belonging and purpose.  The CMHA Pathways Clubhouse in Richmond BC has proven very successful and is well supported in the community.  i believe that youth in the Capital Region would benefit tremendously from such a program.

I wish this group of parents every success in their efforts to establish this highly valuable program for youth in our community.

Sincerely,

Andrew Weaver, MLA
