Mental Health & Social Work

Mental Health

Our goal is to promote, maintain, and improve the mental health and social functioning of adults in Wawa and surrounding areas.

About our Mental Health & Social Work Services

We are all affected by mental illness, whether directly, through family, or friends. In fact, Twenty percent of Canadians will personally experience a mental illness during their lifetime.

The Wawa Family Heal Team’s mental health/social work services are available to persons over the age of 18 years.

Our social worker offers services to individuals, families, and groups in the form of counselling, post crisis
intervention support. Advocacy, coordination of resources, and system navigation are additional services that the program provides.

The mobilization of strengths, support for community resources navigation, and building coping capacities are key investment areas.
