Based on a philosophy of wellness and recovery, we firmly believe in the potential of every person, regardless of symptoms or disability. Academy members progress at their own pace, and are valued for their skills and abilities. Membership is voluntary, without time limits and is open to adults, 18 and over, living with a mental health diagnosis.

Members have access to the entire range of opportunities offered by the Academy, including: vocational training, supported education, employment, wellness, socialization, evening/weekend/holiday events, and connection to other community-based supports.

The safety of Academy members, staff, volunteers and guests is of utmost importance. Background checks are performed on all potential members.
