In keeping with the spirit of the Association of Fundraising Profesionals Philanthropic honour, Mountainview’s President Mark Basciano announced a lead gift from Mountainview Homes to Pathstone Foundation in support of our Natural Playground & Healing Garden. This 10,000 square foot outdoor space will be built at the new Branscombe Mental Health Centre in St. Catharines. An official ground breaking is set for Tuesday, October 2nd.
Walk-in Mental Health counselling for children, youth and their parents and caregivers will be available at Pathstone Mental Health weekly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am-4:00pm (with the last appointment taken at 3:00pm).
Located at the Branscombe Mental Health Centre, in St. Catharines, this three day per week clinic will offer single session, one-on-one service with a Pathstone Mental Health therapist.
This year our Family BBQ is going to be held at the Heartland Forest! It is the ultimate Nature experience for families. We have over 9 organizations sharing in this family event for Niagara. Pathstone staff and clients are invited to attend this fun filled event that will have games and treasures for the kids. Location: Heartland Forest. 8215 Heartland Forest Road (Formerly Kalar Rd)
We are thrilled to share with you the news that Pathstone has secured a $50K grant from Desjardins. This was the LARGEST grant they were awarding across Canada.
This gift has been designated to the creation of Pathstone’s Natural Playground & Healing Garden.
Construction is set to begin in late September 2018 at the Branscombe Mental Health Centre.
Please feel free to share and spread the word.
This safe, outdoor space will be an extension of the support and care we give children within the walls of the Branscombe Mental Health Centre. Children will be able to spend time in our sideways tree, spotting butterfies, tucking inside a log tunnel and foraging in the garden. Our clinicians can also utilize this space for outdoor group therapy. Our greenspace will also be a supportive place for children to deconstruct their session with their parents/caregivers as they work towards recovery.
May 7-13, 2018 is Children's Mental Health Awareness Week!
This week is about increasing awareness of the signs of child and youth mental health problems, decreasing stigma, understanding that help is available and "Treatment Works". Keep an eye out for landmarks across the Niagara Region that will shine green to raise awareness of this week (Niagara Falls, Peace Bridge, Skylon Tower, Welland Bridge, Pelham arches)
Why green? Today we use green to signify new life, new growth and new beginnings.
Wear green coloured clothing or a green ribbon to help raise public awareness and show support to children, youth and families dealing with mental health issues.
To our fellow Canadians from Sasketchewan, the Humboldt Broncos Junior Hockey Team:
Our hearts go out to all the families, friends, Humboldt community and all who have been affected by this terrible tragedy.
