Brief Services – Mental Health Counselling

CMHA Peel Dufferin offers free Brief Mental Health Counselling services. Our program follows a brief counselling model that offers an immediate opportunity for therapeutic conversation within 1-2 sessions. Our aim is to focus on your presenting needs and strengths and work hard with you to find solutions and leave with a plan.

The focus is on single session solutions that are intended to help clients identify their immediate needs. We recognize that there are times when an individual needs immediate support to face a specific challenge. When necessary, our counsellors can make recommendations for ongoing counselling supports.

Who could benefit?

Anyone age 16 years or older, presenting with symptoms of mental illness and emotional difficulties and who reside within the communities of the Central West LHIN.
