Community Outreach Program
We are happy to announce that we are unveiling and delivering a five part outreach program for our community. Please stay tuned for the continued release of these parts.
Part 1: New Client Openings - Address your mental health- pay what you can/session.
Michelle Aziz Counselling is excited to announce, with the support from Carleton University Master of Social Work Program, Sir Wilfred Laurier Master of Social Work Program and Yorkville University Graduate Degree in Counselling Psychology Program- we are now accepting new clients. The spaces being offered are available on a significantly lowered sliding scale as part of our ‘Community Outreach Program’ here at our practice. Openings will be filled on a first come first serve basis with a risk assessment in place as needed and open to Ontario residents.
Part 2: Maternal Mental Health Virtual Village- You are not alone.
Welcome to our free virtual mama village. You are not alone! This group was made in response to CMHA's Mental Health Week where Michelle Aziz Counselling employed a special focus on Maternal Mental Health. This is a place for mamas to connect with other mamas and mamas-to-be and share in their experiences together as well as support each other and make lasting connections. With our moderating of the group, it will have a mental wellness focus. Please share this group and invite other mama's who could benefit from this virtual village.
