We are still here!

Our Walk-In Clinic is currently a Virtual Walk-In – you can get quick access to mental health and parenting support by calling 24 hours a day / 7 days a week (519-941-1530) or book an appointment on-line. Please let us know in the “reason” box if we can leave a voice message on your phone if necessary.

Mental Health Care for Professionals

Educational workers, Health Care Workers and support staff (including kitchen, admin, cleaning, and other staff) in Hospitals, Long-term Care, Retirement Homes, Group Homes, and Shelters.

Our community cares about you!

During this difficult time, we recognize your courage, sacrifice, and the many challenges that you or your family may be facing. We want you to know that we care and truly recognize the demands that you are, and have been, facing.

CMHA, DCAFS, DAFHT, FTP, Hospice Dufferin, and SHIP are collaborating to provide mental health therapists/counsellors – representing our Dufferin community – for you. We would like to help – even in a small way. If you need emotional support, encouragement, or just someone to talk to about your well-being or your concerns.

Please contact us by email ([email protected]) and include information about your preferred way for us to contact you and times that might work best for you.  One of our counsellors will contact you to set up an appointment. This is a confidential service.

If you have concerns that a child or youth is at risk of harm, please contact DCAFS directly at 519-941-1530.
