Counselling services are available to clients of all ages who are experiencing challenges that impact their mental health. If you have an Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) or extended health benefits through your employer you will be asked to fully utilize those services before accessing counselling services at Community Mental Health and Adult Services.
Requests for Mental health counselling services can be made by various sources including:
- Self referrals
- Child and Family Services, YHSSA
- Practitioners such as physicians and nurse practitioners,
- The emergency department and specialist physicians at Stanton Territorial Hospital Inpatient psychiatric services
