Rowe to discuss Disabilities and Trusts

Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use hosts Andrea Rowe who presents on the topic of Disabilities and Trusts.

Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use recognizes the integral role that families play in supporting individuals with serious and persistent mental illnesses.

Future financial wellness is a common concern identified by the individuals and families with whom we work. In some cases, family members are able to assist in establishing a trust for an individual so they can continue to receive Persons with Disabilities benefits.

As part of the Connecting Families Series, Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use (MHSU) will host an Evening Educational with guest speaker Andrea Rowe presenting on the topic of Disabilities and Trusts.

It happens Nov. 25 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Comox Valley Health Unit’s cedar Room at 961 England Ave. in Courtenay.

The presentation will highlight the steps involved in establishing trusts; what to do about inheritances; types of expenditures and schedule of reporting to the Ministry of Social Development as well as the identification of local resources.

In the spirit of connecting families, the room will be open from 5:30 to 6:30 for an informal reception with MHSU staff and a family peer support worker. The presentation will begin at 6:30.

Call 250-331-8524 for more information and to register, as seats are limited.
