(March 17, 2020) In an abundance of caution amid public concern related to the COVID-19 pandemic, Canadian Mental Health Association-S/M (CMHA-S/M) is making some changes to programs and services.
The health and safety of our clients and staff remains our priority as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation. We are following advice from local, provincial and national health authorities in order to keep safe options available to support individuals in need of care, while preventing the spread of this disease.
CMHA-S/M is making the following service changes, until further notice, to protect our clients and staff:
- Suspension of in-person service delivery: Effective Wednesday, March 18th, we will be suspending all in-person service provision at CMHA-S/M office locations (Sudbury and Espanola). This includes services offered during days and extended evening hours. Most community visits and appointments will also be suspended. Service and support will still be available to clients and the public by phone, email or other virtual options.
- Residential and Shelter programs: Services provided in Residential programs and the Off the Street Shelter will continue to be provided as usual.
- Meetings, Trainings and Groups – All non-essential, in-person meetings, training and groups will be cancelled or postponed until further notice.
We will continue to monitor all the developments of COVID-19 and will continue to inform our clients and the community of further changes to our programs and services. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 705-675-7252 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
