Upstream is committed to providing high quality, client centered, mental health services.

We go above and beyond the expectations of our clients by offering a variety of ‘Value Added Services’ such as our Youth Program and other popular social/recreational group events.

Mental Health Community Support

Our long term objective is to ensure we are always able to provide mental health services to every member of our community, ensuring equal access to services that will help them live happy, fulfilling lives.


  • Like most teens, our son doesn’t listen to us. This [youth] program allows him to live his life and have privacy… while also getting support.  

  • Your organization gave me a home and amazing support when my mental health issues became such that I could not live at home anymore.  Upstream gave me a sense of independence and an enormous amount of support.  

  • I learned so much from the case workers at Upstream and I am forever grateful to the organization for helping me recover from my issues and get my life on track.  Thank you so, so much.
