accessing mental health support in toronto

Support and help are available when you need to talk. We offer mental health support here at Planned Parenthood Toronto (see below), however we do not provide immediate crisis support, so we have collected information about mental health supports in Toronto. We hope you find these resources useful. If you are experiencing a mental health or physical health emergency, please call 911 or head to your nearest hospital emergency room.

getting started

The first step in accessing counselling support is to schedule a phone consultation, where one of our Case Coordinators will help you talk through your situation and figure out what types of support services might best meet your goals and needs. After consulting with the mental health team, your Case Coordinator will follow-up with you to talk about options and find out from you what sounds like the best fit for you.

Please note that the length of our waiting list changes regularly, but it is currently around six months long.
