The uncertainty, business closures, job losses and financial stresses brought on by COVID-19 can impact the mental health and wellness of small business owners and entrepreneurs. In an effort to help, we are offering a mental wellness support counselling program at no cost to business owners in Perth County, the City of Stratford and the Town of St. Marys. If you need a safe space to talk we will connect you with a licensed counsellor so you can get the support you need. No personal information will be collected.
We'd like to thank our generous sponsors for their continued support of our mental health programming. Our sponsors include, investStratford, The City of Stratford, Perth CFDC, The Stratford Perth Community Foundation, Orr Insurance & Investment, and Hyde Construction Ltd. along with our community partner, The United Way.
If you or your employees are feeling anxious, experiencing other mental health or addiction challenges, or you can’t access your regular in-person counselling support, there are services available online or by phone, including self-led support, peer support and internet-based cognitive behavioural therapy.
