THANK YOU to the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia for providing a grant to the Court Monitored Mental Health Program (CMMHP) in Kentville! The grant is specifically for assisting our clients with transportation to and from their bi-weekly court appearances. CMMHP participants reside throughout West Hants and Kings Counties, with little or no access to public transportation. This grant has made a tremendous difference for our rural clients, allowing them to access the CMMHP and thereby resulting in better legal outcomes.
