Ontario Invest $1,000,000 to Support New Mobile Wellness Clinics
KAWARTHA LAKES – Today we welcomed the official launch of the Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (CMHA HKPR) new Mobile Wellness Clinics, ‘The Road Ahead’.
The provincial government invested $1,000,000 to increase access to mental health and addictions supports to benefit citizens across the region including Peterborough County, Haliburton County, Northumberland County and the City of Kawartha Lakes by providing access in rural communities.
“Our government is working hard to support Ontarians with the health care they need, where they need it” said Laurie Scott, MPP Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock. “Our community will have greater access to mental health supports through the Mobile Wellness Clinic, ‘The Road Ahead’.
A few of the services offered are:
- counselling and therapy
- support with addictions and substance use
- mental health education
- medication support
- and access to other services such as psychiatry.
CMHA HKPR works to serve our community and access to this new tool will increase the potential for positive outcomes”.
