At Village Family Health Team, we have staff social workers, who work in consultation with your family physician and our team psychiatrists to provide a range of mental health services. In addition to time-limited individual psychotherapy, our social workers offer group programming designed to help you develop skills to manage a mental health concern, as well as brief supportive services and access to community resources.

Some of the specific programs currently being offered at Village Family Health Team are listed below:
Addiction Support Program
A social worker is available to provide support if you are struggling with substance use. The social worker will work with you to identify your goals, help you to take next steps, and refer you to needed resources and supports. The program is designed to be a supportive, non-judgmental, and harm-reduction approach that helps you to achieve your personal goals regarding your substance use. If you are interested, you can speak to your physician or another team member who can connect you to the social worker/addiction counselor.
