The Mental Health Support Project (MHSP) is a program of the North Lanark Community Health Centre. We are a wellness drop-in centre providing resources, activities and social opportunities for adults living with mental health challenges.

Our program is based on Core Peer Support Values such as Recovery, Self-Determination, Respect and Social Inclusion, Integrity, Health and Wellness, Lifelong Learning and Personal Growth.

The MHSP is also referred to as “The Link”. The Link is the site we work from in Smiths Falls. Over the years, the nickname “The Link” caught on as people would “link-up”.

Our staff are trained in peer support practices and have lived experience with mental health. We welcome all individuals to our programs. Those who need support, who live with mental illness and their friends and family are welcome to join us. We provide a friendly and safe environment, free from judgement where we come together for a chat and a coffee, an organized group or to just to relax. When available we offer peer-to-peer time, listening and supporting members to move forward on individual recovery goals.

By promoting and modeling a recovery-based approach to living, we offer hope, encouragement and the shared experience that everyone can build capacities to improve their quality of life and sense of well-being.
