Groups get cash to stop overdoses
Penticton’s Pathways Resource Society and the Lake Country Health Planning Society are among 27 groups in B.C. receiving funding to launch programs addressing the overdose crisis in their communities.
“The projects will help address local needs specific to each community,” the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions said in a news release Friday.
“This funding is part of a two-stream grant process administered through the Canadian Mental Health Association and Community Action Initiative that aims to provide targeted resources for innovative overdose-prevention measures.”
