Self-referrals are encouraged, however, families, community hospitals, family physicians and other organizations can make direct referrals to our services with the client consent. Each person or referral source will be greeted with respect, dignity, and trust. We provide confidential mental health assessments, information, resources, best practice treatment models and comprehensive recovery focused approaches to promote health and well-being. Community education and mental health training are provided through collaborative partnerships to improve understanding about mental health, wellness & illness.
Our continued success depends on the innovative approaches and inclusion of our clients and their families, in meeting the services required to support recovery and engagement within our integrated services. Ongoing promotion of mental health related services contributes to improving the quality of health and life for all persons within our community. This requires a collective responsibility and approach to shared resources and system planning. We welcome the opportunity to enhance services and resources for Lanark County.
