Counselling Options

DoorWays is a single session, walk-in counselling service available to youth and adults without an appointment or referral. A health-care professional will meet with you and discuss your concerns on a first-come, first-serve basis. 
DoorWays provides information and support focused on your need.
 
Some examples of what you may want to discuss are: family, health, grief, work, relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, drinking or drug use.  
 
DoorWays is not an emergency service. In an emergency, call 911 or the Mental Health Crisis Line at 1-888-737-4668, or proceed to the nearest emergency department.
