2

Check your benefits coverage.

In Ontario psychological counselling is not covered by OHIP. Contact your extended heatlh care insurance provider to find out the details of your coverage and if they require a referral from your family physician.

3

See your family doctor.

Sometimes psychological problems have a physical basis. For this reason it is important to see your family doctor to help rule out any physical basis for your emotional problems. If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to make an appointment with your family physician for a physical exam.

4

Do your research.

You can consult the Ontario Psychological Association, The College of Psychologists of Ontario or the Ottawa Academy of Psychology for information on other psychologists working in your area.  Click here for a list of Mental Health resources in Lanark County.
