Together, Stronger with CMHA


“Thanks to the Burlington Foundation grant, we at the Canadian Mental Health Association Halton Region Branch were able to provide free call-in counselling so our friends and neighbours can get the support they need to improve their health, wellness, and coping skills with no waiting list or cost. From May to August 2020, we provided free phone counselling to 107 people in Burlington. Accessible mental health support is always vital and it has become even more important with the unprecedented change and uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to Burlington Foundation for helping us to help our community when they need it most.”

One community member shares their experience: The counsellor made me feel so comfortable talking to her. Today was my first time using this service and I was a little intimidated at first and by the end of it I felt really at ease and the session really helped. I really wish a lot more people used services like this.”
