KAWARTHA LAKES- Herod Financial Services has donated $20,000 to the Journeying Together program run by the Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge. (CMHA HKPR)
CMHA HKPR’s Journeying Together program provides education and support to caregivers and family members of individuals with a mental health concern. The program supports approximately 250 individuals per year, helping them learn how to better support their loved ones and themselves.
The Journeying Together program is available to caregivers in Peterborough and County, Northumberland, Haliburton, and Kawartha Lakes.
CMHA HKPR thanked Kevan and Roberta Herod, founders of Herod Financial Services, for their donation.
“The Herods are leaders in supporting caregiver mental health in our community and they have championed our Journeying Together program since 2014. The Herod’s support has been instrumental in the success of the program,” says Jack Veitch, Manager of Community Engagement and Education.
“It is so important for individuals suffering a mental health concern to have a strong support system. Journeying Together helps sustain the people who love and support their family member or friend who is having challenges. We are so blessed to be able to help the CMHA deliver this important service,” says Kevan Herod, CEO of Herod Financial Services.
“We know that the pandemic has had a significant impact on mental health in our community and we recognize the toll that this has taken on caregivers of loved ones with a mental health concern. Programs, like our Journeying Together program, are needed now more then ever,” says Veitch.
Herod Financial Services is a team of Financial Planners and Service Advisors with offices in Peterborough and Lakefield.
