>
> The Centre for Mental Health and Addictions is a non-profit organization. We offer comprehensive, professional counselling services on a free, low-cost, and sliding scale fee with no cap on the number of sessions. There are no population-specific requirements to receive these services and we believe that cost should never be a barrier to getting much needed proper psychological treatment.
>
> We provide our services through virtual sessions/telepsychology so that mental health services can be accessible to clients in rural and remote areas. This will also be convenient for clients who have no means or access to transportation, or who are not physically able to attend in-person sessions or those who suffer from social anxiety.
>
> We are offering our services free of charge in 2022. We would like to extend these free services to the members of your community.
> Please feel free to visit our website at www.thecentres.ca or call us at 1-800-704-9033 or 587-441-4043.
