CMHA Cochrane-Timiskaming joins individuals and organizations across the province to celebrate Seniors Month in June.
Seniors’ Month is an important time to celebrate the valuable contributions older adults make in communities across Ontario and reflect on the way they are supported. CMHA Cochrane-Timiskaming is dedicated to supporting the well-being of all people throughout their lives, including an important focus on older people. One in four Canadian seniors currently live with a mental health issue. In addition, seniors are often undertreated for mental health problems, due to symptoms of mental health issues being mistaken for other conditions, discrimination and stigma, service availability, and physical and financial challenges.
CMHA Cochrane-Timikaming is proud to offer programs specific to the needs of older adults in our community. For more information on the Seniors Mental Health Program and the Behavioural Supports Ontario Program, please see the respective sections under our Programs and Services.
