MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
Listening to Understand
Lanark County Mental Health is a progressive, creative and dynamic agency. We are committed to improving the quality of life for individuals and their families that have or are experiencing mental illness.
Our mental health services and resources strive to meet the challenging needs that a person may experience when faced with mental illness. Lanark County Mental Health has been providing a variety of mental health services to transitional youth and adults within Lanark County for over thirty years. This agency has been built on the belief of innovative approaches and shared care resources to build the community capacity in providing comprehensive mental health supports and treatments. We are proudly sponsored by the Perth and Smiths Falls District Hospital and funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care within the South East Local Health Integrated Network.
Individuals and their families, community hospitals, family physicians and other organizations can make direct referrals to our services. Each person or referral source will be greeted with respect, dignity, and trust. We provide confidential mental health assessments, information, resources, best practice treatment models and comprehensive recovery focused approaches to promote health and well-being. Community education and mental health training are provided through collaborative partnerships to improve understanding about mental illness.
Our continued success depends on the innovative approaches and inclusion of our clients and their families, in meeting the services required to support recovery and engagement within our integrated services. Ongoing promotion of mental health related services contributes to improving the quality of health and life for all persons within our community. This requires a collective responsibility and approach to shared resources and system planning. We welcome the opportunity to enhance services and resources for Lanark County.
