Isolation and worry can have a negative effect on our mental health, especially during the uncertainty of the COVID-19 outbreak. During a pandemic, it is normal to feel anxious, worried or stressed.
In an effort to support individuals facing stress and anxiety due to the pandemic, CHIGAMIK is now offering appointment-based single-session counselling. All appointments are FREE and conducted using the virtual video conferencing platform called ‘Zoom’.
Please note: this service is for one single-session only. It is not intended to be a resource for people who require screening for COVID-19 or are experiencing a mental health crisis. If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, please contact 911 immediately.
Eligibility: To access this free service, you must reside in the North Simcoe Muskoka region and be 12 years of age or older. You also must have access to the Internet through the use of a computer, tablet or mobile phone.
How to Access: Please complete the registration form below. You will receive a phone call from our Mental Health Intake Worker within two business days to schedule your virtual appointment. Prior to your appointment, you will be emailed consent forms to complete electronically.
