Popular, personable and an elite level athlete, in the eyes of many Cody was living the dream.
“I come from a great family,” says Cody before participating in a group at Ontario Shores’ Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). “I had a great childhood, I had friends and all that.”
It was in his teenage years that he began his struggle with clinical depression. While the people in his life have generally been supportive throughout his journey, it was difficult, at times, for those around him to understand what he was dealing with.
Recovery-oriented practice has been a driving force in the way we deliver our programs and services here at Ontario Shores. Our goal is to provide an environment of discovery and hope that supports and enhances our patients’ sense of individual recovery from mental illness. Ontario Shores continues to evolve and deliver several new initiatives related to recovery in mental health services and the latest milestone in this pursuit is the development and launch of an academic journal focusing on recovery in mental health.
