To us recovery is defined as…
An experience where you actively engage in your own process, working independently and with others to enjoy a meaningful life in your own community, to fully exercise your rights and freedom as citizens, and to achieve the quality of life you desire.
Our approach to recovery is…
Working together in partnerships of empowerment and respect for lived experience, embracing key principles of hope, self-determination, responsibility, and social inclusion.
Embracing the recovery approach…
We recognize that you are a unique individual with the right to determine your own path towards mental health, well-being, and a meaningful fulfilling quality of life.
Providing client and family-centred care
We are committed to putting our clients and families first. In all of our services and programs we work with clients and families to understand their needs, and put their priorities at the centre of what we do. We respect people from all walks of life and value diversity. We continuously strive to make our spaces safer and more supportive, so that every person can explore meaningful ways to experience recovery and improve the quality of their life.
