Since its launch, our HJFS Mental Program has been a vital part of our community-based holistic services. Some of our program highlights have included:

  • Providing than 1,300 hours of therapeutic interventions annually;
  • Creating a full-time Community Mental Health Counsellor position;
  • Establishing an office location at the J-Centre for Wellness (1605 Main Street West, Hamilton) with the delivery of hybrid services;
  • Delivering virtual mental health workshops including Mindfulness, Managing The Winter Blues, and Stress Reduction;
  • Creating the Older Adults Mental Health Advisory Group, consisting of community agencies, interested stakeholders, and individuals with lived experience to advise on mental health issues pertaining to Older Adults


May is traditionally Mental Health Week in Canada, and we, at HJFS, are now also referring to May as HJFS Mental Health Champion Month.

This May, add your name to our list of HJFS Mental Health Champions!  With a tax-receiptable donation of $10 or more, you will become an HJFS Mental Health Champion. Your donation supports our HJFS Mental Health Program. Your name shows that you believe in our work; you believe that no one should not have to suffer in silence.
