Thank You Augsburg Evangelical Lutheran Church for Supporting Tangerine Counselling!
A sincere thank you to Augsburg Evangelical Lutheran Church (https://www.augsbram.ca/) in Brampton for their donation of $15,000 to EveryMind Mental Health Services. We are proud to designate this contribution to one of the service areas most in need of support – Tangerine Walk-in Counselling.
Tangerine services are usually offered in a walk-in, in-person format, but since April 2020, as a result of COVID-19, we pivoted our programming to a safe and secure virtual format. A free service with a designated telephone line and option to self-schedule online, Tangerine clinicians help to develop a clear plan of action recognizing and building on the strengths and abilities of young people. This counselling service is offered Monday to Friday.
Children, youth, and families turn to EveryMind for support with a wide range of issues. Those who seek support through Tangerine quite often turn to us with such issues as anxiety and depression; significant changes in their life; relationship issues within their home, school, and community; strong emotions affecting their behaviour; youth involved in the justice system; those at risk of homelessness; and young people struggling with grief or loss.
This donation is critical to our work, and will help us to ensure the immediate needs of children, youth, and families are met, especially at a time in their lives when they need us the most. We are grateful to the congregation and outreach committee for selecting to support EveryMind Mental Health Services.
Thank you Augsburg Evangelical Lutheran Church for sharing in our vision of caring communities working together for children, youth, and families.
