Mental Health 101
Talking about mental illness can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. These conversations are often the most important discussions to have. Our Mental Health 101 program provides an open table to voice any questions or concerns you might have about mental health conditions.
The Developing Mind
Early intervention can address the needs of children and families in children’s development and success in life. This program is designed for families and/or caregivers of children struggling with developmental, behavioural and social issues. We believe that Individuals, regardless of the degree of intellectual or physical ability, should enjoy the full rights of citizenship along with the full experience of community inclusion, such as access to community resources and services and the opportunities to contribute and participate with others.
New Beginnings Referral Service
Finding mental health services that are appropriate for a loved one’s unique situation can be a daunting task that leaves one feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, discouraged and defeated. At AGATA Resource Centre, we will help you in finding the right resources and clinical services appropriate to support you in supporting your loved one. Getting the right support is the first step to optimal mental health and wellbeing.
