Mental health is important for everyone. Sometimes we need help in finding new ways to make life easier and remove the stressors in our lives.
According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 1 in 5 Canadians will experience mental health issues in their lifetime.
Mental health affects all of us, young and old, rich and poor, all cultures, every disability, from coast to coast.
Do you need a counsellor to work through personal struggles and life issues?
