Marriage and Couples Mental Health in Toronto

Although the average income for households in Toronto is relatively high compared with other Canadian provinces, standing at $69,156 as of 2005, not all families are as fortunate. According to Campaign 2000, 383,000 children and their families throughout Ontario live in poverty.2 Finances are a common stressor for families, particularly in low-income households. Low income is often associated with mental disorders that can last a lifetime, including increased risk for suicide, substance abuse, mood disorders and anxiety. If you or someone in your family suffers from mental health problems due to financial stress, you can find free information by calling the Ontario Mental Health Helpline at 866-531-2600.3

Woodgreen Community Services is one organization in Ontario that helps people facing mental health challenges in Toronto and in other local areas. More specifically, Woodgreen targets individuals who suffer from problems due to poverty, social isolation and inadequate housing. The organization offers support counseling, housing and social groups to help individuals and families get back on their feet. For information about all their programs, call 416-645-6000 extension 1100.4

Family Services and Assistance Programs

In addition to counseling services, Woodgreen offers support groups for parents and children with developmental disabilities. These families often have a hard time getting the help they need due to financial restrictions. Most of their services are offered for low or no fees because the agency is funded in part by charitable donations. The Ontario Mental Health Helpline mentioned above can connect you with Woodgreen and other agencies that provide similar services.
