Welcome to MHC



TO OUR VALUED CLIENTS AT MENTAL HEALTH CONNECTIONS

Mental Health Connections is happy to welcome you back to in-person classes on a modified basis.  A new schedule will be updated on this website every two weeks, as well as posted on facebook. 

Since many of you have requested to continue with on-line classes, we continue to offer classes both in-person and on-line to accommodate the needs of all.  In-person classes began on June 13, 2022 and registration for in-person classes started on June 7, 2022.  

In order to participate for the in-person classes, you MUST register in advance as some restrictions will still be in place FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL.  To start, in order to provide an opportunity for everyone to participate, you will be able to register for a maximum of 6 in-person classes per week.  You may also attend any on-line classes.  Once your in-person class is finished, you will be able to schedule social time in the kitchen for a specified time in between cleaning/sanitizing.  You can register with your instructor or call the office.  

DUE TO COVID-19, WE ARE ENHANCING SAFETY MEASURES FOR EVERYONE’S SAFETY, WHICH INCLUDE:

  • Increased Cleaning and Disinfecting/Sanitizing
  • Mandatory Masking
  • Six Foot Distancing
  • Hand Sanitizing

To receive a wellness call, or to register for a class, call the office at 519-256-4854.

Thank you to everyone for your cooperation to keep everyone safe and we look forward to seeing you.  Remember, don’t forget to register in advance.

ABOUT US

Mental Health Connections (MHC) was established in April 2004. MHC provides Psycho-Social Rehabilitation services (recovery strategies) to clients with a mental illness as a result of an integration with three groups – Programmed Activity for Therapy and Health (PATH), Consumer Survivor Alliance of Windsor-Essex County (CSAW) and the Family Mental Health Network (FMHN).

MHC provides services to 1,000 plus clients who range from 16 to 84 years of age.  Since the successful integration, MHC has surpassed the level of service to our client base. Through careful planning, strategic partnerships and support of other community agencies, MHC has positioned itself as an integral transparent and necessary agency in Windsor-Essex.

MHC embraces a welcoming environment in which individuals can strive to maximize their potential by accessing a variety of strategies for recovery – educational, health and fitness, recreational, social, peer support and vocational activities. 

Our Board, staff, funders, volunteers and community partners can all be credited for the pride that we enjoy today with respect to the quality of services we are able to offer.
