About

In 2018, there was a community discussion at Norwell High School that discussed the alarming rates of suicide within our community. In response to that meeting and the community’s concerns, Minto Mental Health was formed in January 2019.

Minto Mental Health strives to bring awareness, training and support services to the Town of Minto and surrounding communities. Our website has curated various in-person and virtual counselling options available to members of our community and can be accessed 24/7.

Minto Mental Health values:

  • People – we value people as a whole, holistically. We want to ensure that all individuals feel supported and are given the opportunity for growth.
  • Inclusion – we want everyone to feel welcome and access the resources and services needed to meet their unique, personal needs.
  • Collaboration – working in partnership with individuals, volunteers, community partners and service providers.
  • Responsiveness – we have a commitment to ensure we are responsive to the community’s needs in response to the ever-changing circumstances.

We are part of the newly developed Integrated Youth Services Network project working to bring integrated care to youth ages 12-26. We are in the process now of renovating a space for a youth hub where youth will be able to access a variety of services across the continuum.

Mental health is an essential piece of our wellness, and it is important to talk about it. As a community, we want to build resiliency and become a more proactive community. Our mental health is just as important as our physical and spiritual health. We must continue to bring awareness to the topic and provide resources available to those who need it, when they need it. 

Minto Mental Health is an accessible website that provides users with access to resources and services they can self-refer to. We also partner with many service providers and organizations to help advocate and bring awareness to mental health and get help. 

We are active on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and utilize our platforms to educate followers about Mental Health and provide resources.
