Native Horizons Treatment Centre – Update
As many of you are aware, the Native Horizons Treatment Centre (NHTC) experienced a devastating fire that destroyed their buidling on Thursday, December 13, 2018.
As an update, NHTC is now being housed temporarily on Six Nations of the Grand River. While they are not offering programming, they are available for community visits for referral workshops, needs assessment services for clients, and education/training workshops.

Kids Help Phone
In November, 2018, Kids Help Phone launched a confidential texting service that is monitored in real-time by over 700 volunteers across Canada.
Youth utilizing the services are in their late teens and/or young adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship issues and feelings of isolation.
In a 8-month testing period, there were 13,000 texting conversations where youth reached out for help.
