THE provincial government plans to invest $1.2 million in annual funding in the non-profit Klinic Community Health Centre, which operates a range of programs from youth education to crisis counselling to reproductive health.

"Despite the uncertain economic times in which we find ourselves, we want to ensure that Klinic continues to offer the important programs and services that help build healthier and safer neighbourhoods and communities," said Children and Youth Opportunities Minister Kevin Chief, in a press release. "This funding is focused on tackling issues such as bullying, fetal alcohol syndrome spectrum disorder and drug use."

The Klinic centre is at 870 Portage Avenue.

Klinic programs include:

-- Teen Talk, an award-winning program that delivers interactive workshops to youth aged 14 to 19 as well as peer-support training programs that educate youth in the areas of healthy relationships, sexual and reproductive health, and mental health. Teen Talk North provides training and support for service providers working with youth in rural, remote and northern regions of Manitoba to enhance their capacity to respond to the health education needs of youth in their communities.

-- Project Choices, a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder prevention program that offers information and individualized feedback to help women make healthy decisions for themselves about alcohol use and contraception.

-- Drop-in counselling, offering free advice and guidance (maximum six sessions per person) about relationships, family violence, sexuality, depression and anxiety, alcohol and drug use, child and parenting issues and more.

-- Crisis counselling programs including the Manitoba Suicide Line (1-877-435-7170), 24 Hour Klinic Crisis Line (204-786-8686 or 1-888-322-3019), Manitoba Farm and Rural Support Services Stress Line (1-866-367-3276) and Manitoba Farm and Rural Support Services Online Counselling Service at www.ruralsupport.ca.
