Here, we consider the person rather than the diagnosis or the issue. We believe that each person already has within themselves the resources they need to cope with their situation—but sometimes a little help can go a long way.

Let’s talk mental health!

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines mental health as “a state of mental well-being that enables people to cope with the stresses of life, realize their abilities, learn well and work well, and contribute to their community.” According to this definition, having good mental health is not just a matter of being free of illness.

Mental illness is defined as changes in a person’s thinking, mood or behaviour that cause distress or suffering. Mental illness manifests as :

  • the physical, psychological and emotional symptoms a person experiences, and
  • signs of change observed by people close to them.

When you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s only human to ask for help!

Our services are available to anyone whose psychological and emotional balance has been disturbed or threatened. We’re here for you!
