Mental Health & Addiction Support


The Hamilton Community Legal Clinic and Legal Aid  Ontario have teamed up to bring greater access to justice to individuals living with mental health issues and addiction issues through our new project titled, The Hamilton Legal Outreach.

Individuals living with mental health issues and or addictions issues may face barriers in accessing appropriate legal support. The higher aims of this project are to meet individuals where they are in their journey towards recovery by providing flexible and accommodating legal services tailored to each individual’s specific needs.
