Individual and Family Support

 Having good mental health involves knowing about and accessing resources in your community. Individual and Family Support is a provincially funded program at the Canadian Mental Health Association that works to connect people to the tools they need to maintain their mental wellness and to recover from a mental health issue.  We aim to support individuals and their families through:
