In this sector, communication is at the heart of treatment. It is therefore crucial that Francophones receive services in their language when confronted with mental health or addiction issues.
Since 2015, Entité 4 supports health service providers within its territory in offering the Mental Health First Aid program. This program helps participants to recognize signs and symptoms of mental health conditions, enables them to provide initial help and guide an individual towards the appropriate professional assistance. Chigamik Community Health Centre offers this workshop from time to time in the North Simcoe Muskoka area. CMHA Durham also provides these workshops in Durham Region, and soon this program will be available at Taibu Community Health Centre in Scarborough. Please contact us to find out about upcoming dates within our territory.
