My mental health journey with cmha addiction services

This past year has been filled with a lot of growth and learning for me. After struggling to keep my addiction in check, I reached out to CMHA Addiction Services for help. They provided both emotional and practical support during a challenging period of my life.

The care coordinators at CMHA gave me guidance on getting back on track with day-to-day activities that supported my mental wellbeing and healthy coping skills. I attended group sessions and worked with a counsellor one-on-one to explore the difficulties that were arising from after effects of trauma.

After several months of hard work, I’m in a much better place today than before I started this journey. Although recovery is an ongoing process, I’m proud of myself for showing strength in times where it was difficult. One thing’s for sure - without the multi-faceted approach offered by CMHA Addiction Services, I wouldn’t be this far along in my journey toward better mental health.
