Our Mental Health Programs

Doctor’s Referral Needed

Please note, our PCN focuses on primary care, so we do not provide ongoing services and treatment.

The SPPCN Mental Health (MH) Program offers a variety of free services that require a referral from a doctor, typically your family doctor.

  1. Visit your family doctor
    • If you do not have a family doctor, you can find one or alternatively try to get a referral from a doctor at a walk-in clinic if necessary. 
  2. Get a Mental Health Program Referral. 
    • Upon receiving a referral, we offer:
      • initial assessments
      • treatment plans
      • system navigational assistance 
  3. Ages we serve: 
    • Our mental health clinicians can provide services to children (pre-school & up), adolescents, adults, and seniors. 
    • Our PCN’s Mental Health Program also offers one-time adult psychiatric consultation-only services at the request of a family doctor and at the discretion of our mental health clinicians.

Our Team and How it Works

Mental Health Navigators and Behavioural Health Consultants (BHCs), who are typically registered social workers, are the first point of contact for patients referred by SPPCN family doctors. Mental Health Navigators conduct an initial telephone screening and seek to connect patients with PCN and/or community-based services that will best fit the patient’s need(s). We have Mental Health Clinicians on our PCN team who can provide care through one-on-one appointments or group therapy classes. 

Group Options:

In addition to one-on-one patient support, we also offer free group therapy classes. Check back often to see what may be available. 

We maintain waitlists for our group options, so if you have a referral from your doctor and are interested in one of our group options, please call us (780.410.8000). To successfully be placed on a waitlist, you must also be screened by one of our mental health clinicians.
