The K.V. Oasis Youth Centre has held its grand opening in Quispamsis.
The facility offers youth a number of things all under one roof…recreation, entertainment, music and art. Someplace for kids to go rather than hanging out in the parking lot at MacDonalds or Timmies.
Executive Director Yennah Hurley told Global News the mental health aspect of this new centre is perhaps the key feature because youth today are growing up in a very different world from their parents. A lot of them suffer from minor anxiety to depression and even suicidal thoughts.
