Description of McKerracher Groups - Winter 2020
Peer Support Program: Peer Support, provided by people with their own lived experience of mental health and/or addiction challenges, provides clients with extra support and understanding as they work towards a goal. Some goals we have helped people with include attending a new group or program, signing up for volunteer work, and developing conversation skills. Having a peer support worker can increase people's sense of hope and belief in recovery. Referrals to this program can be made by Mental Health & Addictions (MHAS) staff on behalf of their clients. Clients without an MHAS worker can seek a referral to our program by calling Centralized Intake at 306-655-7777 or contact McKerracher Centre for more information.
Additional Therapies: Client needs are addressed through a variety of group and individual programs (i.e. self-care skills, conversation skills, budgeting skills, creative-expressive therapy and collective cooking).
Clients are offered education to maintain and improve their leisure pursuits in the community. Fitness and regular opportunities for social interaction are available as well as individual counselling and family support.
