2019 Bronze Recipient
Mental Health at Work
A proud recipient of Accreditation Canada’s, ‘Accreditation with Commendation’ award (2019-2024) and Excellence Canada’s Bronze certification in Mental Health at Work, Across Boundaries provides high quality, safe and effective mental health and addiction services to marginalized, racialized communities. Services are uniquely enhanced by incorporating an anti-racism, anti-oppression and resisting anti-Black racism lens in the service recipients’ journey of recovery.
The agency utilizes research, community engagement, capacity building, and awareness of the intersection of personal identities, combined with advocacy at the individual, institutional and systemic levels to inform key components of our work.
As a leader comfortable with uncomfortable dialogue in areas of racism, oppression and anti-Black racism has led us to one of the most exciting initiatives currently underway – the development of an Across Boundaries’ Learning Institute to ensure the experiences, histories and therapeutic approaches developed over two decades of the agency lifespan, are widely shared for greater collective impact!
