Canadian Mental Health Association, Niagara has partnered with Niagara Health to open a new shared location in St. Catharines to improve care, better connect clients to mental health and addictions programs, and help clients more easily navigate the system.
Programs at the shared location at 264 Welland Ave. in St. Catharines opened to the community April 16. Niagara Health services moving to the new location include Men’s and Women’s Withdrawal Management (Detox), ABC (A Better Choice), the Out and About Methadone Clinic and Hepatitis C Satellite Clinic. All CMHA Niagara programs and services based in St. Catharines, including the Safe Beds program and urgent support services, will also be provided at the new shared space.
The decision to team up came after consultation with hundreds of clients, their families and community partners. The renovated facility is brighter and larger, and will provide a safe environment and fully accessible programs and services.
