Intentional mental health and wellbeing conversation check-ups at the doorstep of the most vulnerable in our community. These visits support community members who feel isolated and are not able to participate in the mental health check-ups and connection points that would normally be a part of their weekly support network due to Covid-19. Doorstep engagement is a holistic approach as it also allows us to check on the physical wellbeing of people and their families within their home environment.
