We are here for anyone who needs support.
Especially in these challenging times.
Well, here we are in December 2020 – and what a year it’s been! We hope this newsletter finds you and your family keeping healthy, safe and warm.
There is some light at the end of the 2020 tunnel with the announcement of vaccines arriving; however, COVID-19 still remains a constant shadow and has created various mental health challenges for many Albertans. At Wood’s Homes, we have seen a near 40% increase in therapy sessions compared to this time last year. We see the effects on the individuals, couples and families we work with – people who already were facing extraordinary challenges.
We are here to help. Our Eastside Community Mental Health Services are immediate and no-charge, and there are many different ways to receive counselling, such as Text, LiveChat or e-therapy. Callers are able to book virtual therapy online, as well as access extended services (with the same therapist).
Eastside Community Mental Health Services are available at the locations listed below. Until the current restrictions are lifted, all walk-in services are on hold. Please call 403-299-9699 for help. A professional counsellor will answer and help you find the best mental health service for your needs.
