Supporting Our Families and Take a Break are part of the Interior Region Family Navigation Project.
Are you caring for a child/youth or dependent adult up to age 25? Are you feeling overwhelmed as a result of mental health and/or substance use issues of your loved one? Do you need help in navigating the mental health/substance use system and accessing community supports in the BC Interior? If so, CMHA’s Family Navigation and Take a Break services may be for you.
These services are being offered throughout the BC Interior by CMHA South Okanagan Similkameen in collaboration with 7 other CMHA branches.
