On Wednesday, May 8, Eli’s Place is hosting a very special event. Please join us for an evening of inspiration and information.
The conversation around mental health has changed in the last decade thanks to awareness raising campaigns that flood our airwaves and social media feeds seeking to normalize mental health issues while advocating for better treatment options and increased services. Awareness campaigns and hashtag days have made inroads into destigmatizing mental health issues, a cultural shift towards understanding that mental health is health.
Join our guest speakers on Wednesday, May 8 for an evening of information and inspiration as we explore a new model for treating mental illness. Speakers will discuss the current mental health services available, both hospital and community-based, from professional and personal perspectives.
The audience will be introduced to Eli’s Place, which will be Canada’s first long term rural residential treatment centre for emerging adults with mental illness – and learn about the benefits of applying the recovery model in treatment.
There is a tremendous gap in our mental health system for young adults, aged 19 to 35, with serious mental illness. Eli’s Place will provide a long-term, rural residential treatment and recovery-based program.
The first of its kind in Canada, Eli’s Place will offer individualized therapeutic care with a graduated transition into the community. A range of programs will promote recovery and resilience through the acquisition of life and work skills needed to move from survival to living, and from mental illness to hopeful futures.
