The CMHA-CEH Branch offers a variety of Supportive Programs, which are open to all members of the community. These programs allow individuals to meet other individuals in the community who may be going through similar experiences, and to actively work on their mental wellness.
Our Supportive Programs include:
Free, weekly sessions from a Certified Auricular Acupuncturist are offered to all community members from our branch location at 574 Prince Street.
Participants report improved stress management, sleep, mood, and a reduction of craving for nicotine or other substances.
These sessions are open to everyone, no registration necessary. Weekly from 6:00pm to 7:00pm on Wednesdays.
CMHA Colchester-East Hants Branch is a strong supporter of C.A.S.T. (Communities Addressing Suicide Together), and is the host site for on-going regional meetings.
Working in partnership with the CMHA Division office in Dartmouth, this group hopes to develop a local response to bring increased awareness to issues of suicide.
