Special Announcements
A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been signed by Canadian Mental Health Association Grey Bruce, G & B House, and HopeGreyBruce Mental Health & Addiction Services. Grey Bruce Health Services (GBHS), which serves a large population of outpatient adult clients seeking mental health and addictions support, is also part of the MOU and will be working with the group to transition some of its services to the new agency.
At HopeGreyBruce, our goal is to provide our clients with the best possible mental health and addiction services we can with the resources we have. We rely on our clients to tell us whether or not we are meeting that goal…whether we are providing the services they need…whether we are helping them. Your opinion counts – please let us know what you think we are doing well…and also tell us where we need to make improvements.

Hope is the only thing that keeps me going. I always go to bed at night thinking tomorrow is going to be a better day…not just another day. I wouldn’t have survived without the hope that I receive from the staff at the Markdale office.
