SWNT - Improving Access to Mental Health Services

Do you know of any Shelburne County residents that struggle to access mental health care due to transportation barriers?

There is now an great subsidy opportunity that has been made available by the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia, Mental Health Foundation, through their Community Grants program!

While funds last, clients paying out-of-pocket can be referred to Sou’West Nova Transit by a health or community service provider to have their transportation fares significantly reduced (up to 100%!) for pre-booked travel to mental health related appointments throughout Nova Scotia!

  • You would like to learn more about this opportunity or Sou’West Nova Transit in general; we can send more information electronically, or arrange a time to meet in person or by phone
  • You know of another provider or organization serving Shelburne County residents that you think would like to hear about this opportunity
  • You have a client or community member you’d like to help arrange transportation and fare subsidy for
