"Moving Forward has a team of 250 counsellor and social workers, many of whom are students on supervised practicums. Through such
community/post-secondary collaborations, we are able to partner with like-minded agencies such as Seniors Services Society of BC in order to meet the needs of our diverse communities.

Covid has significantly impacted the mental health of our seniors, and Moving Forward has the skilled practitioners to support the emotional health needs of seniors through weekly telephone calls focused on mindfulness and self-care."
