The Need

We must close the existing gap in care

For many of the 160,000 young adults in Ontario with serious mental illness, traditional clinical therapy is not enough. Lacking access to long-term holistic residential care, these young adults cycle in and out of acute care in hospital ERs. The threat of suicide is real with more than 1 in 7 reporting suicidal ideation.

The Solution

Canada’s first therapeutic farm

Based on an effective and proven model, Eli’s Place will offer young adults with serious mental illness a farm-based, long-term residential treatment and recovery program. Community living, meaningful work and individualized therapeutic care will nurture a growth mindset in our clients. Transitional care as clients move back into the community will be available as individual needs evolve.
