Peer Support – The Link

Do you or someone you love live with mental illness?

You are not alone.

The Mental Health Support Project (MHSP) is a wellness drop-in centre for adults living with mental health challenges in recovery and wanting to connect with peers. At MHSP you will find staff trained in mental health peer support practices who also have lived experience with mental health challenges. MHSP is home to a team who meet every person as an equal, offer emotional support and practical ways of coping, who actively listen and build relationships based on trust. The  Health Support Project was founded on the cornerstones of peer support: Self Awareness, Self-Responsibility, Self Care and Support.

We offer:

  • One to One Peer Support 
  • Emotional Support
  • Support Groups based on recovery goals
  • Social Recreation Activities

At the Mental Health Support Project, you will find activities, resources and social events. If you have a friend or family member who is living with mental illness, please join us, too! If you are interested in a recovery-based approach to living, we are here to help. We offer hope, encouragement and the shared experience that everyone can build their capacity to improve their quality of life and sense of well-being.

MHSP provides a friendly and safe environment, free from judgement where we come together for a chat and coffee, as an organized group or just to relax.

Where are we located?

We are located at 88 Cornelia Street, Smiths Falls. This building is often referred to as “The Link” .
