Mental Health Navigation Program

MAX can help you navigate mental health services and find GBTQ2 affirming professionals using a three-step approach:

Step 1:

Intake - Our Health Navigator meets with you to discuss your needs and explore options that work best for you.

Step 2:

Referral - Our Health Navigator provides you with a list of referrals that suit your goals and work for you financially. Currently MAX can refer to psychologists, social workers, and other forms of psychotherapy.

Step 3:

Follow-Up - At the two week and three month marks our Health Navigator checks in to make certain you are receiving the support you need.

If needed, our Health Navigator can offer additional referrals or explore other options with you.

If you have any questions or aren’t sure about the service, our Mental Health Programs Coordinator can talk to you about your concerns. Email m.pecore@maxottawa.ca or call 613-701-6555 ext. 101
