The Community Counselling Centre will keep its doors open.
Northern Health and the University of Northern B.C. announced the new partnership Monday to save the low-cost counselling services.
The care centre announced in April it was suspending all intakes after UNBC said it could no longer include the cost in its budget.
The agreement means Northern Health will fund the staffing for the clinic and the university will provide the space, at the downtown campus in the BMO Building on Third Avenue.
The centre has been open for six-years to all Prince George and regional residents who can't afford private counselling. Since its start in 2009, 51 UNBC graduate students have worked at the centre as part of their practicums.
"We want to ensure that students receive both the theoretical knowledge and hands-on opportunities to put their skills into practice," said UNBC president Daniel Weeks in a release.
"We're pleased that this partnership will allow continued service to the community while offering training opportunities and leadership skills development for future clinicians."
It will also serve as a space for clinical education and training opportunities for community organizations and Northern Health, the release said.
Both local Liberal MLAs, Mike Morris and Shirley Bond, praised the move in statements.
"It is important to have a wide range of mental health and addiction services available, and this program meets an important need with community based counselling," said Bond.
