Other Wellness Supports

Wellness means being as healthy as possible in our mind, body and life. Nutrition, movement and activity, social support and community connections are all important to help us live as well as we can.

In addition to the psychosocial and rehabilitation support that we provide, there are other sources of support you may find helpful both within AHS and in the community.

There are many organizations who can help with practical, emotional or physical supports.
