Mental Health was identified in the community needs assessment as the priority in The Kanesatake Health Center Inc. five-year health plan (2015-2020) and is implemented by the Health Center's inter-collaborative mental health team including Child & Family Services, Home & Community Care, Primary Care Services and external collaborators providing promotion, prevention and direct services, such as drug and alcohol referals.
The Kanesatake Health Center Inc. Mental Health Program provides a wide range of spcialized culturally adapted and family centered approach programs and services tailored to the needs of community members.
Anger management support services were identified as a need in the community and were therefore made available as part of the mental health initiative. The one-on-one sessions are available two evenings a week.
