Ruah Counselling Centre Inc. began operating as an independent entity as of January 1st, 2022 under the direction of an independent Board of Directors. Ruah, formerly The Family Life Bureau, began in 1976, as a counselling service primarily funded by the Archdiocese of St. John’s. However, as a non-profit agency, we have now secured funding for the delivery of much needed mental health and wellness services in the province. We will explore and avail of diverse funding sources that will support the continuation of the delivery of our programs and services.

Our programs and services include individual, couple and family counselling; psychosocial groups; workshops; and community presentations. We request a standard fee for our services, however, we also offer a rate based on a sliding scale including a reduced fee or no fee, depending on one’s ability to pay. As we continue to strengthen and develop as an independent entity, we will further develop our operational model to meet the demands for our services.

Ruah is committed to the continuation of this vital community service and we look forward to the support of our funding partners to ensure continued success. We thank all those who have supported us in the past.
