During this time, CMHA Saskatoon has made the decision to close our physical doors to the public, while still providing virtual and over the phone services to our clients and the community. We are aware that not all services in Saskatoon have this option, and are grateful that we are able to do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The safety of everyone is our priority.
This time of uncertainty has undoubtedly caused an increase in anxiety in many of us, and we want to reassure you that we are still available to be reached over phone (306-384-9333) over email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or even via Facebook messenger. We will continue to provide support and resources to our community and clients.
CMHA is now offering presentations virtually to meet the demand of our community during this time. For more details on booking a virtual presentation please contact Reanna Boschee:
