Canadian Mental Health Association Champlain East Increasing Services for Seniors



Older adults can register now for Mood Walks in October

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) Champlain East is helping reduce older adults’ social isolation by increasing access to programs and services thanks to a new Seniors Community Grant from the Ontario government.

The $25,000 grant will allow the branch to provide Mood Walks and Living Life to the Full programs to older adults in the community. Mood Walks promotes both physical and mental health by reducing barriers and creating new opportunities for older adults to be physically active. Living Life to the Full is a mental health promotion course designed to help people deal with everyday life challenges and learn self-management skills.

 “As Ontario’s population ages and loneliness becomes an ever more present problem in our society, we recognize how important it is to ensure the quality of life for older adults across the province. This funding provides opportunities for older adults to stay active, healthy and engaged in their community,” said Joanne Ledoux-Moshonas, Executive Director, CMHA Champlain East.
