All of our programs are free of charge and for racialized people.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation (Social Rehab) uses activities, knowledge, and skills to aid individuals recovering from mental health issues. It emphasizes group activities, daily practices, community engagement, and other social activities to enhance and preserve wellness. It enables people to expand their networks, share skills, develop leadership skills, establish, and maintain social and therapeutic interactions.
Across Boundaries believes in incorporating holistic practices that help people along their healing journeys. We believe in providing our community with complementary programs that support the mind-body connection, such as meditation, yoga, art therapy, Qigong, food and nutrition. Alternative holistic therapies educate people on how to manage their overall health. Overseeing one’s health and well-being is powerful and essential for achieving peak mental health.
