MMHA support helps expand Bridges for Women’s counselling services

Bridges for Women is grateful for the support of the Ministry of Mental Health and Addictions, which has provided $50,000 in funding to expand the availability of our trauma counselling and provide related supports to help build resilience.

“During the pandemic, more women have been affected by trauma, violence and abuse,” said Patricia Rawson, interim executive director, Bridges for Women Society. “We are grateful for this investment that provides funding for much-needed expanded supports for women and their families to heal and build connections.”

“The effects of trauma can raise issues around self-worth and ability to cope with the world,” said Gwen Davies, clinical counselling co-ordinator, Bridges for Women Society. “This funding has made a world of difference to the women we serve, supporting them to move into the world with renewed confidence.”
