History


Our organization was created to provide support for individuals discharged from psychiatric hospital beds to the community.  The first Annual General Meeting was held in March 1988 under the legal name of Hamilton Community Support Association.


For most of its history, the agency was known as Wellington Psychiatric Outreach Program and was located on Wellington and King William Streets in Hamilton.  In 2014, the informal name was changed to Hamilton Mental Health Outreach (HMHO).  This name better reflects a contemporary commitment to outreach and recovery.  In 2016, the office moved to 987 King Street East, Hamilton.
