Thankful for our past, embracing our present
and working towards the future
In the late 1950s, a number of visionary people began to dream of providing a service in Christ’s name for people who struggle with mental illness and psychiatric issues.
Today we are now a network of more than 150 practitioners and offer new, community-based ways of reaching out to the very group of people envisioned by the organization's founders.
Our dream is for every person to thrive in healthy relationships in strong communities, regardless of circumstances. We are constantly working towards this vision. Donations bring us that much closer.
Give today. Change tomorrow.
THE SHALEM FOUNDATION
Our purpose is to strengthen support and create growth in the Shalem Mental Health Network through donations. These donations enable the Network to continue providing quality counselling and community support programs. We invite you to learn about the ways you can give today!Learn More
