Why Support Eli's Place
What leading mental illness practitioners have to say
“So often, people like me have treatment done to and not with us. Many times, one of the things we need is to be an agent in our own lives, to be competent, to be capable, to be given a chance to have faith in ourselves. The model at Eli’s Place, sees young adults with serious mental health issues as whole individuals, with a suite of talents and abilities, who can be well, and envision a healthy future. Most mental health programs teach you how to survive. Eli’s Place wants you to learn how to live.”Annette Smith25 years experience living with mental illness
I am 100% supportive of Eli’s Place. My support is in honour of my son, Jordan, who worked so hard to be well when resources and supports were unavailable for his mental health needs. He died of suicide at age 39 in July 2017. I know Eli’s Place would have been the place for Jordy to find a comprehensive community of support and independence. I continue to applaud you for your loving work in honour of Eli and all the young people who need to find a path where they can recover.Lynn Birnie
