The BRIDGES Society is a charitable, non-profit organization that serves as a community resource, a drop-in centre offering programs for all who wish to participate in social outreach for their own mental wellness and for the development of healthy habits and lifestyle.
Our Mission is to cultivate mental wellness with various programs in a safe environment for everyone. We affiliate and partner with other support agencies in Hinton, making it easier for people to find the support they need to live more fulfilling, prosperous and healthy lives as active, contributing members of our community. Our services feature peer support, social arts & recreation activities and community meals programs.
The BRIDGES society provides support, community-based programming, information and understanding to anyone wishing to maintain their mental wellness through connecting with others, including people living with: schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, panic/anxiety disorder and other mental health challenges. Our hope is that everyone in our community receives support, services and the opportunity to enjoy lives which are healthy, secure and meaningful. Our activities and services help ease the loneliness and isolation that frequently accompanies mental illness, as well as promoting overall wellness and the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle. We are committed to providing a safe, understanding place for people of all backgrounds including seniors, youth, families, people with disabilities, First Nations, Metis & Indigenous peoples and 2SLGBTQIA+.
Our volunteers are exceptional! They experience the same benefits of participation in our programming that our clients and guests experience.
