who we are
Across Boundaries (AB), an ethno-racial community mental health centre, is a registered charitable organization (Registered charity number: 14098262 RR 0001), funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care thru the Local Health Integration Network (Central). Across Boundaries provides a range of supports and services to people from marginalized communities including immigrants and refugees who are experiencing mental health problems.
The centre provides a holistic approach to dealing with mental health problems recognizing the interdependence of the spiritual, emotional, mental, physical, social, cultural, linguistic, economic and broader environmental aspects of health that affect the well being of people of color. Along with mental health problems, clients are challenged with a unique set of issues that are culturally, politically and socially specific to the country of their origin. Repeatedly, in the traditional Western medical field, these issues are not factored in with diagnosis and treatment of clients. It is Across Boundaries' (AB) commitment to serve a myriad of cultures and people.
It should be noted that Across Boundaries (AB) currently provides services in many languages including Urdu, Hindi, Tamil, Farsi (Dari and Pashto) Somali, Swahili, Amharic, English, Mandarin, Pilipino, Sinhalese, Arabic, Antawi, Yoruba, and Punjabi.
