Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What are Support Groups?
Support Groups are safe, confidential spaces where individuals with similar experiences or challenges gather to share their stories, offer each other support, and gain practical coping skills. These groups are often facilitated by trained individuals who guide the conversation and ensure a supportive and respectful environment. 

What is Counselling?
Counselling involves one-on-one sessions with a qualified mental health professional. It provides a private space to discuss personal issues, explore feelings, and work through challenges. Counselling can help individuals develop coping strategies, strengthen resilience, and improve mental well-being.

Community Supports include a variety of programs and services designed to help individuals integrate into their community and manage their mental health. These can include workshops, educational seminars, recreational activities, and social gatherings that encourage engagement and promote mental health awareness.

What are Clinical Supports?
Clinical Supports refer to medical or therapeutic services provided by healthcare professionals, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, or licensed therapists. These services are aimed at diagnosing, treating, and managing mental illness through clinical interventions and treatment plans.
