Mental Health & Wellness Team (MHWT)
This month, we have been busy connecting with new clients who were recently referred to the Mental Health and Wellness Team for mental health support, advocacy support, and help with navigating funding options. We are excited to announce that we are expanding our team! We will have a Mental Health Counsellor joining our team starting September 1st. This will support our clients and team greatly. We are also busy planning for our Fall group programs which will start in September – registration is now open for Fall, check out the program guide for information on what groups we are offering.
