Dr. Eric Hoskins Visits Gerstein Crisis Centre


Dr. Eric Hoskins, Ontario Minister of Health and Long term Care visited Gerstein Crisis Centre on February 25th, 2015 to make an announcement.

Our FRESH (Finding Recovery through Exercise, Skills and Hope) workers were on hand and Lecia Cole did a great job sharing her story with the crowd. Dr. Hoskins was very personable and took the time to mingle with the many stakeholders who came out to hear the announcement. Ontario is investing in local mental health and addictions organizations to provide care closer to home for people who are experiencing mental health and addictions challenges.
