We help people learn how to maintain their mental health, look for and identify the signs of mental illness, and get help and support when they need it.

Our programs include:

* Adults & Seniors - Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) is designed to provide comprehensive, community-based psychiatric treatment, rehabilitation and support to people with serious and persistent mental illness.

* Youth - Education and awareness leads to prevention and early identification. While not all youth will develop psychosis, many will experience serious mental health challenges.

* Family & Friends - Families, caregivers, and friends who support someone with a mental illness are also impacted by that illness.

* Community Education - We know that mental illness does not discriminate. 1 in 5 Canadians, of all ages, genders, sexual orientation, ethnicity, income and ability, will experience a mental illness in their lifetime.
