The Branch Out Neurological Foundation contributes TMS machine to new youth resilience centre in Calgary
The Summit: Marian & Jim Sinneave Centre for Youth Resilience will help change the future of mental wellness for young people and families
March 27, 2023
There’s a new resource in town that’s changing the game for youth mental health support in Calgary. The Summit: Marian & Jim Sinneave Centre for Youth Resilience officially opened its doors on March 13, 2023, and Branch Out was lucky enough to get a tour behind the scenes before opening day.
Billed as one of the most impressive, state-of-the-art, youth addiction and mental health centres in Canada, the Summit will be a place of help and hope for children, youth, and their families in Calgary. It offers walk-in and no-cost therapy sessions for youth who need help with specific conditions and possible solutions.
By providing early intervention, treatment, and resources, the Summit’s goal is to reduce the number of crises experienced by youth.
The Summit’s name honours Marian & Jim Sinneave and their commitment to community well-being by supporting organisations like the Alberta Children’s Hospital.
Branch Out-funded transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS) machine
Branch Out is honoured to be a part of the Summit with the addition of a transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (TMS) machine to the building. Back in 2020, a $100,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Calgary made it possible for Branch Out to donate a TMS machine to the Alberta Children’s Hospital. The TMS machine is used for both research and clinical practices to help youth with major depressive disorder.
