The Support Network

This project will expand the volunteer training program providing improved access to mental health crisis services. Community members who need access to their services will be supported with improved coping mechanisms which will decrease the strain on other community resources. The program will provide valuable communication and other life skills for volunteers and ensure the Crisis Support Centre has the resources needed to deliver this valuable mental health service.
