Mental Health & Support Services

Mental Health & Support Services

Social workers play an integral part of the interdisciplinary team and provide goal-oriented and time limited therapy in consultation with family physicians and psychiatrists. Our social workers have social work degrees, are registered with the Ontario College of Social Service Workers, and have additional training in therapy modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.   Our social workers facilitate intake, conduct psychosocial assessments, and provide counselling, advocacy, and short-term case management services.  Some reasons for referrals include depression, anxiety, grief, loss, workplace/school stress, interpersonal stressors, and life transitions.  Additionally, our social workers also offer programming that is designed to help you develop skills to address specific mental health concerns.

You can access this short-term therapy by speaking with one of your care providers. The program is covered by OHIP and you must meet the eligibility criteria.
