News Apr 17, 2019 by Alexandra Heck Orangeville Banner

Everyone has mental health.

It’s the status of that health that’s important, and now there’s a place in Orangeville to learn more about it.

The Edify Centre is a new business in town that offers mental health education to groups and individuals, counselling services, self-care classes and more.

“I’ve worked in the community for many, many years,” said co-owner Sonia McDonald, who specializes in youth counselling.

Her partner Brian McFadden offers mental health-focused boxing through the Physical Focus Program, which fuses mental and physical strength.

“We saw a serious need for the connection between mind, body,” said McDonald, explaining that while a number of public mental health services are offered in Orangeville, there is still a demand, particularly for educational services.

The Edify Centre offers courses on suicide intervention, suicide awareness, eliminating bullying and self-care, among others.

“If you walk through the door here, we’re going to help you find the service you need,” said McDonald, explaining that while they are not a crisis support clinic, staff are trained to handle crisis situations and are able to connect individuals with other services in the community.

“Our theory is you have to take care of your mind, you have to take care of your body to take care of your community,” said McDonald, explaining that physical health is intimately connected with mental health.

The Edify Centre is located at 62 Broadway.
