There is no health without mental health and a person’s mental health suffers without a roof over their head, a stable income, addressing personal traumas, being valued as a person and being part of the community.
Family Services Windsor-Essex (FSWE) understands these connections and provides counseling, advocacy and support services so that people can address these issues and reach their personal potential.
Windsor-Essex: safe, inclusive and vibrant communities, where all people have meaningful, supported lives and are able to realize their potential as independent, active participants.
What makes us human is the drive to self-determination. When people lose this drive due to injustices such as trauma, poverty, exclusion and discrimination, FSWE provides support to build resiliency and restore people’s ability to choose their own place in the world.
Supporting Communities and Families. Strengthening People.
