Pathstone donors responds to calls from the community, expanding Walk- In clinic service.
St. Catharines, ON (February 11th, 2019) – Beginning Today, Pathstone’s Hear & Now Walk-In Clinic will be even more accessible. The clinic, which currently offers immediate, one-on-one mental health counselling three days each week will expand to five days per week.
With calls from the community to increase mental health service and access to it, the Foundation reached out to our loyal donors. We had overwhelming support from Niagara residents and commitments from the Fowler Family Foundation and Medavie Health. The expansion of the Walk-In Clinic was only made possible through these donations. We will need to continue to fundraise to keep this service and hope to be able to count on the community for help.
