On Saturday January 26th, Brant Mental Health Solutions, officially opened in Paris. Located at 139 Grand River Street North, this new mental health clinic offers, counselling, play therapy, sand therapy, art therapy, speech therapy and psychology services.
Dr. Spenser and Amy Dougley are the founders of Brant Mental Health Solutions and Brant Wellness and Rehab and felt that mental health services were much needed in Brant County. After one of their children was diagnosed with a mental health disorder, they realized there was nowhere equipped to deal with childhood mental health in the area, and that the wait lists for help were far too long. They also felt that there wasn’t adequate support for the families and loved ones who are caring for those struggling with mental health disorders.
Brant Mental Health Solutions is set up to care for people of all ages and will be a resource to the community through workshops and seminars.
The Grand Opening Celebration was attended by many people from the Brantford and Brant County Communities and the official ribbon cutting ceremony took place with both the Mayor of Brant County (David Bailey) and the Mayor of Brantford (Kevin Davis), as well as MPP Will Bouma and Ward Counsellor Marc Laferriere.
Dr. Spenser and Amy Dougley feel thankful to be a part of the Brant County Community and are hoping to prevent other families from facing the challenges of mental health alone.
