To access our services:

During clinic hours (8:30-4;30. Monday to Friday) call the main clinic number (902-543-5400).

Talk to an intake worker about your concerns.

The intake worker will let you know if we can help with your problem. You might be given an appointment to see a clinician, or you might get information about how to participate in one of our groups or be admitted to another programme.

If a different service might be better able to help with your problem, the intake worker will give you information about how to connect with them.

After hours:

If you have a crisis when the clinic is closed, you may call the provincial crisis line, 1-888-429-8167, which is staffed by licensed clinicians with a background in social work, nursing or occupational therapy. The clinicians assess each call for imminent risk and safety before helping the caller cope with their issue. The crisis line is available 24 hours a day.How to access our programmes:

What to do if you have an emergency:

Mental health emergencies are like other health emergencies: if there is imminent risk someone will harm themselves or others, call 911, or go to the nearest emergency department.
