Counselling Connect

Counselling Connect - Counseling, on connect capitalizes on a digital health solution to connect residents from Ottawa and surrounding regions to community-based mental health and addictions services to ensure that children, families, youth, adults, and older adults have quick and easy access to prevention oriented mental health and addictions care in both official languages.

How Counseling Connect Works:

  • Easy online quick access to counselling appointments - no waitlist
  • Access to a skilled mental health and addictions professional from a trusted, community-based mental health and addictions organization
  • Specific services available for Francophone, Indigenous, LGBT2SQ+, and African, Caribbean and Black communities
  • Seamless bridging to other social services as needed following the initial session.
  • A prevention model: For most, the single session is sufficient and helpful to address clients’ distress and/or concern (Hymmen and Stalker, 2013 Hoyt; Talmon, 1990)
