Shalem Mental Health Network seeks to restore hope. The professionals working at this organization, located in Hamilton, recognize that hope often emerges in lament (see the Biblical Psalms of Lament). They consider it a privilege to be invited into spaces of deep pain and healing—and there to encounter the God of living hope and the extraordinary courage of people.
Shalem offers two ways of accompaniment:
Individual, couple and family counselling: This includes 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.
Equipping and supporting communities: This includes faith communities, to better embrace the needs of people who struggle with emotional distress and/or mental illness.
