MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

Posted on: February 8, 2012


Being homeless is tough. Being homeless with a mental illness compounds the problem. In part one of a special series on mental health we’ll look at a groundbreaking new Lawson Research Institute study focusing on homeless youth with addiction and mental health issues.

They are the things we do in the normal course of a day, going to appointments, preparing meals, even tidying up at the end of the day. But for some those routine tasks can be challenging. The St. Joseph’s Regional Mental Health Team has developed a program to help clients overcome those challenges. Gerry Dewan explains.

It’s the way we stay connected, Facebook, Twitter, smart phones, and iPads. But new technology has a way of leaving some people behind. As Gerry Dewan tells us a research project being undertaken by staff at St. Joseph’s Regional Mental Health Care is trying to make sure that doesn’t happen.
