Understanding Mental Health

Mental health is as crucial as physical health, yet it is often misunderstood. At Simcoe Addiction and Mental Health (SAMH), we recognize that mental well-being is a complex interplay of emotional, psychological, and social factors. Our approach to treatment starts with educating our clients on common disorders such as depression, anxiety, and OCD, which are among the many conditions we expertly address.
