Mental Health & Addictions Support
MENTAL HEALTH and ADDICTIONS SUPPORT
This multifaceted program provides clients with a broad range of services including: individual counseling; case management; crisis management; therapeutic group facilitation and assessment services. Many of these services are provided using an informal, relationship building approach in the shelter’s common area or through one-to-one counseling. The counselor embraces a non-judgmental, harm reduction philosophy that focuses on maintaining safety and empowers client to identify their individual priorities and work with their existing strengths and resiliencies. The program also provides clients with mental health and addiction resources when they transition out of the shelter into the broader community.
We are so happy to have a new partner supporting our new Mental Health program. Green Shield Canada has agreed to support our program for the next few years. We look forward to the many benefits Horizons’ will receive through our new partnership with Green Shield Canada.
