Our Mental Health and Wellness Team are busy connecting with new clients this month. We continue to see many adults, children and youth on the spectrum reach out for mental health support at this time. Our PERMA Self-Care group for parents is up and running and going well. The Mental Health Team has also seen some staff changes this month. Olivia O’Neill, Manager of the MHWT is currently in the interim role of Director of AIP. Bethan Weeding has moved into the interim role of Manager of the Mental Health and Wellness Team.
