Mental Health Programs

Mental Health Counselling

The Mental Health Program offers a range of counselling services to adults who are living with a mental health illness. Counselling services are offered through individual counselling, couple and/or family counselling, workshops and group programs.
Our program works from the perspective that everyone struggles with mental health at different times in their lives. Our program addresses those aspects of challenges to mental health where daily functioning is impaired. We support people living with chronic or acute mental health issues or who have been diagnosed within a range of psychiatric diagnosis.

Our counselling services include workshops series and group programs that are focused on a variety of issues that are related to mental health and well-being.

These services include topics such as:

Locations: Counselling services are provided at Family Services à la famille Ottawa situated at 312 Parkdale Avenue.
Hours: Counselling services are offered Monday to Friday between 8:30 and 5:00. A limited number of evening hour appointments are also available.
