Counselling and Mental Health Supports
Revitaled offers informal counselling supports. Our informal “counsellingship” program is a blend between mentorship and counselling. With this individualized program, our Counselling Lead will help releasees to understand the root causes of their past decisions, and develop a plan to prevent re-offence. Our informal counsellingship program takes place through one-on-one sessions, optional faith-based counselling, and support groups.
Counsellingship is also offered to victims and survivors of crime and their families. All counselling supports are developed from a person-centred approach.
We hope to launch our free culturally-informed psychotherapy sessions, and a lived-experience mentorship program for releasees soon.
