Foundry Victoria brings health and social services together in a single place to make it easier for young people to find care, connection and support.
The Victoria Youth Clinic is the lead agency for Foundry Victoria.
A one-stop shop for youth since moving to our new space in October 2017.
Our on-site partners are:
Island Health (Early Psychosis Intervention)
Discovery (substance use counselling)
The Victoria Youth Clinic Society (VYC) is a not-for-profit organization that provides integrated and comprehensive primary health care services, including mental health and addiction care for youth aged 12 to 24 years. We are a team of dedicated and skilled youth-focused professionals that includes doctors, nurses, counsellors, outreach workers, youth support workers, a parent support worker, wellness navigator and administrative staff.
We are a drop-in clinic, so just call us and we can let you know if we have a space available that day! You don't need a Care Card to access our services.
We are open Monday to Friday, and we have doctors, nurse, counsellors, peer support, outreach on site every day. We have walk-in counselling available and you don't need to see a doctor to access this service.
We want to respond to your needs and preferences for health care and we work hard to understand what is unique about you and make it easy for you to get the health care you want.
