Overview

Shalem offers two ways of accompaniment:

Individual, couple and family counselling.
This includes specialized therapy for children and youth who struggle with attachment disorders and their caregivers. We deeply honour and respect all those who embark on a journey of healing.

Equipping and supporting communities,
including faith communities, to better embrace the needs of people who struggle with emotional distress and/or mental illness. LEARN MORE

The Shalem Mental Health Network is a registered charitable organization (Charitable Registration Number: #13056 6011 RR0001), incorporated in 1963. The organization is supported by Members who elect a volunteer Board of Directors.

In 2006, the membership approved new by-laws, in 2008 the Board adopted an ambitious three-year Strategic Plan, and an exciting new three-year Plan (2015-2017) has been approved by the board of directors. All are available upon request. Shalem is supported by fees for services, donations, and interest from capital. Shalem’s most recent audited financial statement is also available upon request.
