Community in Mind

   “Paving the way to our Health and Well-being”

As part of the Government of Nova Scotia’s Mental Health and Addictions Strategy, ADAM has received funding towards this project to address the needs of the community around mental health and addictions with a focus on increasing education and awareness on the topic of mental health and reducing the related stigma.

Our  program objectives are:

  • To collaborate and build relationships with community partners by conducting an in-depth capacity needs assessment with ADAM staff, board members and community leaders. The focus of the assessment will be made specific to the African Diaspora Community to identify the determinants of mental health and well-being.
  • To address identified mental health stigma among immigrants of African Decent and to provide educational awareness on mental health and well-being through workshop/kitchen counter discussions.
  • To work with mental health service providers to develop or access culturally competent practices and policies and provide representative information on mental health awareness and available services in the community
  • To ensure  free Mental Health First Aid Training guided by the Mental Health Commission of Canada are made available to community leaders and community members.
