Surrey condo development to include centre for treating veterans and first responders
Experts on post-traumatic stress disorders, mental health and rehabilitation will run a centre dedicated to treating veterans and first responders at a unique Surrey condo development that is on track for completing its first phase late next year.
The Royal Canadian Legion B.C./Yukon Command, Whalley Legion Branch 229 and the Lark Group have construction underway at the Legion Veterans Village (LVV) in downtown Surrey.
They recently said the market housing portion of the development, marketed as Parc Centrale, with 171 one- and two-bedroom units, sold out.
Phase 1 of the LVV building will include a Centre of Clinical Excellence for PTSD and Mental Health and an Innovation Centre for Rehabilitation. There will be programs and services focused on clinical rehabilitation services, health care programs, services and trauma counselling for PTSD and mental health. There will also be a focus on training and research toward new practices, interventions and technologies involving robotics and advancements in neuroscience.
