Community Care Program


The Community Care Program brings individuals and families and their supporters together, to work through complicated life issues and make life better.


  • Looking beyond the behaviours and finding the reasons for the behaviour, then coming together to create a plan and support the client in working through that plan.
  • Agencies working more effectively, together in a positive way.
  • Building trust between agencies and clients.
  • Looking at the client, the accused, the student from a different perspective and having them see more than the social worker who took their kids away, the cop who arrested them or the principal who kicked them out of school.


  • Taking over an agency’s mandate
  • Cutting people a break or avoiding responsibility.

Instead, it’s about accountability for all involved, in a respectful way.

Screening Criteria



THRIVE Learning Centre

At Thrive Learning Centre we offer free, informative courses, addressing topics related to mental health, physical health, building your best life, finding your voice, increasing skills and connecting to community.

Our courses are designed through the lens of honoring those with lived experience of mental illness. We believe that through one’s own personal journey, meaning and purpose are created, resulting in rich knowledge. That is why we make every effort to design courses keeping the perspective in mind of those with professional experience as well as people with lived experience of mental illness.
