Support Salus - Give Hope

DID YOU KNOW THAT ONE IN FIVE PEOPLE WILL SUFFER FROM A MENTAL ILLNESS AT SOME TIME IN THEIR LIFE?

It could be you, someone you know or, someone you love.

We are surrounded by the heartbreaking stories of the devastating effects of mental illness changing the lives of people of all ages. We hear about them, we read about them. We talk about them. 

EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS.

SALUS IS DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT. YOU CAN HELP.

  • For nearly 300 Ottawa adults living with severe mental illness, Salus provides comfortable living arrangements in supportive environments, either as independent tenants or in transitional housing
  • The Salus model is changing lives everyday. Through the Salus model of supportive housing and support, adults with chronic and severe mental illness can find independence, recovery and the opportunity to enjoy a quality of life that many never dreamed was possible

  • Every year Salus helps adults with mental illness transition from chronic hospitalization and homelessness to a life of hope and independent living
  • Salus helps people stay on medications, maintain their therapy programs, and recover from addictions
  • Salus creates “home” environments that encourage people living with mental illness to become more active, less isolated and part of a community
