CMHA Niagara joins individuals and organizations across the province to celebrate Seniors Month in June.
Seniors Month is an important time to celebrate the valuable contributions older adults make in communities across Ontario and reflect on the way they are supported. CMHA Niagara is dedicated to supporting the well-being of all people throughout their lives, including an important focus on older people. One in four Canadian seniors currently lives with a mental health issue. In addition, seniors are often undertreated for mental health problems, due to symptoms of mental health issues being mistaken for other conditions, discrimination and stigma, service availability, and physical and financial challenges.
CMHA Niagara offers Walk-In Counselling twice a week at two locations (Niagara Falls and Fort Erie) for individuals seeking support with their mental health and problem-solving.
