Donations will be used to support or expand existing programs, and develop new initiatives for our members. All programs delivered by JOC aim to improve the mental health, social wellbeing and overall quality of life of adults living with a diagnosed mental illness.
We respectfully acknowledge that we work on Aboriginal land and pay our respects to community members and elders, past and present.
