Oct 26, 2023

A new home for mental health and addiction services at Kettle and Stony Point First Nation also will provide residential beds for those in recovery.

Leaders and community members at the First Nation near Forest gathered Oct. 26 for the official opening of its Mental Health and Wellness Hub and Recovery Home in a renovated former church.

Julie George, mental health and addictions manager at Kettle and Stony Point, said there’s room for five residential beds for women on the lower floor of the former St. John’s Anglican Church and two tiny homes built by Habitat for Humanity to house men.

It’s hoped two more tiny homes can be added so there will be four beds for men at the Recovery Home, she said.
