Cornwall Ontario  – In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Addiction and Mental Health Services is adapting its approach to protect staff, clients, families and members of our community. All services continue to run, providing essential support for those in need during this stressful time.

Cornwall Community Hospital - COVID-19

“We have the infrastructure in place to remain an important lifeline for the community. We know this is a challenging time for everyone and our team is here to serve,” said Christine Penney, Vice-President of Community Programs at CCH. “We want people to know – we’re here for you, we’re adapting to COVID-19, we’re still accepting patients and working through our waitlist.”

To best support clients across SDG and Akwesasne, counselling and therapy programs are currently being conducted by phone, rather than at CCH’s Community Addiction and Mental Health Centre. Video conferencing will soon be offered to clients as a next step.
