Mennonite New Life Centre – Anger Management

Group Name: Mennonite New Life Centre – Anger Management

Description: The Mennonite New Life Centre envisions a society in which all people from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds participate fully in all aspects of Canadian life. We will model an approach that brings together community engagement and community services, working together with newcomers to reduce insecurity and reach integration, strengthen voices and increase social equality. As a community-based settlement agency, the Mennonite New Life Centre is a place of welcome, friendship and community, where newcomers and neighbours gather to support each other, learn from each other, and take action together for a more just and compassionate society.

Anger can be a natural response to the stress of migration, the challenge of navigating new realities in a new language, and struggling to find meaningful employment. Through this program, we assist individuals to understand and better channel their anger. A specialized version of this program focuses on domestic violence, emphasizing prevention and accountability.

Where: 2737 Keele Street | North York, ON M3M 2E9

When: Runs weekly. Please call for more information.

Ancient ceremonies and traditions, intrinsic to our health care model are available.

Our service model integrates Traditional and Western approaches to assess, diagnose and treat mental health issues across the life cycle.

Central Toronto Youth Services

Group Name: Central Toronto Youth Services- PATTS

Description: Central Toronto Youth Services (CTYS) is a community-based, accredited Children’s Mental Health Centre that serves many of Toronto’s most vulnerable youth. We believe in building the strength and resiliency of young people in ways that are engaging, respectful and empowering.

This program was developed to focus on youth learning appropriate expression of their emotions since a growing body of research is indicating that many aggressive youth are actually depressed and have trauma histories. The PATTS program adopts the perspective that many aggressive youth have exceptional leadership qualities that need to be redirected into more socially acceptable behavior. PATTS groups are designed to encourage peer support and reinforcement of positive behaviors. Learning is encouraged through brainstorming sessions, activities and role plays.

PATTS (Peaceful Alternatives to Tough Situations) is a 10-week counselling and peer support group for young men ages 14-17 who need help managing their anger and want to learn how to build healthy relationships. Food & TTC tokens are provided.

When: Now accepting referrals. Stay tuned to website for dates once there are enough participants.
