Currently, there are many different centers dedicated to mental health and a vast variety of programs that are available to the general public; these include bereavement programs, anger management, suicide prevention, and other things that can help those who are struggling.

One of the most important of these programs is the Crisis Services of the Waterloo Region, which works with patients from ages 10 and up.
