Mental Health Clinicians

Our Mental Health Clinicians are here to provide short-term counselling, advocacy, and community referrals with regard to a wide array of issues such as anxiety, depression or any psychosocial stresses. The clinicians can maximize a patient’s functioning and independence by providing counselling services in individual or family formats, advocate on a patient’s behalf within the health care community to assist and facilitate further support, and provide patients with information on community resources and facilitate access to these resources.
