Residents in search of the proper mental health and addiction resources can attend monthly open houses starting Dec. 19.

At each open house, hosted by the Rapids Family Health Team and Bluewater Health, a registered social worker and hospital addictions program employee will be available to help identify what services are available and how individuals can access them.

“We certainly don’t have all the mental health services that we require, but we have many services that people are often unaware of and it’s important, especially during the holidays, to get people connected with services that fit their needs,” said Lynn Laidler, executive director at Rapids Family Health Team.

Open houses run the third Wednesday of the month, 11a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Rapids FHT Community Teaching Kitchen, 460 Christina St., N. (back entrance at Maxwell Street).

Free refreshments and free Naloxone kits provided by Lambton Public Health.
