Autism is not caused by a lack of love, and it is not cured by punishment. Parents need support to manage difficult behaviours with structure and consistency.
Mental Health & Wellness Team
The Mental Health & Wellness Team provides individual counselling, mental health education and support for Autistic adults, children, adolescents and their families. We strive to prioritize the specific needs, unique strengths, and therapy goals of each individual client. We believe in empowering the individual and their families, and providing an empathetic, safe and accepting environment. In 2022, we offered individual counselling services in-person and through a secure video platform (Zoom) to Autistic individuals. We provided education to 190 individuals, families, and the community about Autism. We offer counselling support in the following areas: Mental wellness, Anxiety, Mild depression, Stress management, Handling life transitions, Emotional regulation, Autistic burnout and Masking. We look forward to continuing to provide the best supports we can in 2023.
