This program provides access to mental health and/or addiction support services in French.

The System Navigator

The System Navigator will help you access the services of mental health and addiction professionals including access to 10 hours of free psychotherapy and access to psychiatrist consultations, if needed. You will be connected to French-speaking professionals either in person or virtual as needed.

These services include:

  • Comprehensive mental health and addiction screening, assessment and treatment planning.
  • The development of an individualized plan of care.
  • Case management services.
  • Linkages to appropriate healthcare and other support services.
  • Promotion of mental health awareness through educational sessions and workshops.
  • Access to interpretation services that you may need with other service providers.

By gaining the support of and working with a variety of local organizations and healthcare professionals, this program aims to develop a support network for delivering services and building links to provide clients with continuing care.
