When Shayne Postma needed support to cope with his drug addiction, he was told he’d have to wait three months to get help.

“I overdosed and I ended up going to jail and all this other stuff. There was no connection in those three months. I wasn’t able to talk with a counsellor,” said Postma, who recalled dealing with addiction at 16 years old.

“To get help within those three months was very limited.”

It’s part of the reason why he’s on the committee for Windsor’s Youth Wellness Hub, run by the Canadian Mental Health Association Windsor-Essex County Branch (CMHA-WECB).

On Tuesday, CMHA-WECB announced that a permanent location for the hub has been secured. The space at 215 Eugenie St. is currently undergoing renovations, but is expected to be open by spring of next year.
