About Our Organization
"Shalem" (pronounced ShaLAME) is a beautiful Hebrew word which means "wholeness", "restoration" and "peace". In that spirit, and driven by such core Gospel values as healing, restoration and community for all, we seek to come alongside those who are hurting and vulnerable. We believe that all of us are wounded in some way but that healing and restoration is also possible.
Shalem offers two ways of accompaniment:
1. Individual, couple and family counselling. We also offer specialized therapy for children and youth who struggle with attachment disorders and their caregivers. We deeply honour and respect all those who embark on a journey of healing.
2. Equipping and supporting communities, including faith communities, to better embrace the needs of people who struggle with emotional distress and/or mental illness.
Our dream includes developing services which help to define a new, mutually beneficial relationship between professional mental health programs and community.
