COPE Mental Health Services
COPE is a community mental health program offering support to adults aged 16 and older, with emotional and/or mental health concerns. All COPE services are free of charge. COPE volunteers and staff presently help people through individual and group support.
Please note that over the next several months we are phasing out individual support, with a goal date for completion of April 1, 2015. This is not a service reduction. We will continue to offer clients support and social recreational groups, and will be transitioning resources to expand this service with additional support groups available through the COPE Program. Please click the link in the Group Support section below for available support groups.
Individual Support: A trained volunteer is matched with the client to work towards achieving the client’s identified goals.
Group Support: Staff and trained volunteers facilitate support, coping skills, educational and social/recreational groups such as: depression, anxiety, stress management, losses, social recreation, and groups for caregivers and family members.

Specialized Geriatrics: This program is offered by Community Care Durham in collaboration with Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences. The program offers assessment, consultation and referral plus supportive services for high risk older adults 65 years and older with mental health concerns living in the community.
Home At Last (HAL): This service assists clients in getting them settled in their homes safely and comfortably after a stay in the hospital. There is no charge for this service.
