Over the past year, the Canadian Mental Health Association in Portage has seen a good number of expansions to their programs. Executive Director Leisa Miness says they have a new program running every Wednesday nights known as "Women Empowering Learning and Living (WELL)."
"What it is, it's for women who maybe don't want to go hang out in the coffee shops, certainly don't want to go to the bars, but they need to connect with other people and peers... To spend some time doing some self help and getting themselves better and making sure they maintain their good mental health."
She adds another big highlight of the year was the opening of their new complex. Located on 1st and Fisher the building has been at full capacity since the doors opened back in May of 2012. She says it speaks to the lack of housing here in Portage, adding they could probably built two or three more houses and have them filled.
