There is more help for those living with mental health or addiction issues in Saskatoon.

Eight newly renovated transitional rooms are ready for use at Lighthouse Supported Living. They will house those who are afflicted with mental health issues or addictions, and who require support to live independently.

Two full time and one part time staff members will be hired to assist the new wing.

Lighthouse already has 70 people living in the downtown building, which is going through extensive renovations.
