Mental Health Services
Helping you through difficult times in a safe and supportive environment.
One in five Canadians will experience a mental illness in their lifetimes and everyone will know someone who has struggled with their mental health.
Whether it is a stressful workplace, difficult relationship or personal health issue, we are committed to providing our community with patient-centred mental health services to help people navigate through these challenges.
Our social work program offers individual sessions of brief solution-focused therapy (six to 12 sessions). Skilled counsellors will meet with patients who would like to obtain a positive mental health outlook. Each appointment is 45 minutes to one hour in length.
We ask all patients to use their Employee Assistance Program services through their employer prior to receiving counselling services at our Centre.
We work with our community partners such as Choices for Change and Canadian Mental Health Association to provide you with the best mental health care possible.
Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN) is often used to provide additional professional expertise for your care via TV in a private, confidential setting.
Children’s Mental Health Services
Our social work team partners with local children’s mental health agencies to provide service for our community’s youth. This includes St. Clair Child and Youth Services, Huron Perth Children’s Centre and Vanier Children’s Services.
