Our Annual Report is traditionally a joint-offering by Pine River Institute and Pine River Foundation (now all one organization, under the Institute). It highlights the positive impact PRI has on the lives of students who complete the program, their families, and increasingly the work Pine River is also doing in the broader community. In essence, it highlights the work all of you do, in all your varied roles, every day, to create positive change.
“There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected us all, in ways we are still discovering,” said Vaughan Dowie, CEO of Pine River Institute and Foundation, in his note to stakeholders. “But the impact on youth’s mental and substance health is especially serious given the lack of resources combined with the social isolation that was fall-out from the pandemic.”
As we explain in this Annual Report, we are seeing more youth with more complex issues, and more serious behaviours. This situation challenges us to adapt and expand our program, so that every youth has access to the clinical support and tools they need to successfully address their issues, both now and in the future.
The Report emphasizes that Pine River works: The data collected in our ongoing evaluation and outcome analysis – during treatment, and for several years post-program – shows that PRI has helped youth and their families rebuild their lives, their relationships, and their futures.
