Mental Health in Whitby

Whitby is a town located in Ontario that has a population of 122,022 (at the most recent census, in 2011). It is full of different things that have helped to make life better in the area, such as great public and private schools, many job opportunities, and a healthy environment to raise children. These are all very important things that have led to a healthier community that has grown and developed as a whole. Leaders of the area are constantly making improvements and watching out for the health of citizens.

This has led to the creation of many organizations that are dedicated to mental health and preventing mental illnesses.2 It can be easy to find an organization or counseling center to help with any problems that you face, but if you are not sure where to look, it can be very difficult at first. The area has some residents who live with Autism, depression, and other mental illnesses or disabilities. One great organization that has helped families and patients who live with Autistic individuals is Autism Ontario, which has been around for many years. They can be contacted at 905-432-5092.3

Current Initiatives

In addition to counseling, the city has plans to create businesses and jobs that will help prevent mental health among adults and families. The production of new jobs and new opportunities for residents will help to reduce stress and lead to a healthier community. Some new businesses will be hospitals and other healthcare facilities that will only further help the residents� health.4
