Education and Awareness campaigns aimed at helping reduce the stigma of mental illness were made possible with a $10,000 grant from the Health Sciences Foundation. As well, Adult Mental Health has received some new electronics through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant. The flat screen TV, DVD/VCR player and Nintendo Wii are helping improve patients’ moods, lessen their anxiety and support their relaxation.
Culturally sensitive care is respectful of people different from us. This means that unique needs, preferences, beliefs and values are appreciated. You will receive care without discrimination based on race, colour, age, religion, gender, national origin, disability, education, income, diagnosis or sexual orientation.
