Accessing Mental Health Help

HQ offers group therapy, and one-time assessments. To access services, you can either have your family physician send us a referral or refer yourself by coming into the clinic and registering in person.


After your registration, you will be sent a series of online questionnaires to complete. Once we have reviewed your responses, we can add you to the waitlist for the appropriate groups. We offer group therapy at various weekdays and times in both the afternoon and evening.


We do not offer any individual therapy appointments or couples counselling. Please note that due to overwhelming demand some of the groups have a waitlist of between three and six months

Mental Health Experience and Outcome Measures

Patient Reported Experience Measures (PREMs) are self-reported measurements that you will complete to provide information about your satisfaction with and experience receiving healthcare at HQ. PREMs are focused on your experience of the processes of care.


Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) are self-reported measurement tools that you will complete to provide information on your health and how the service has impacted your quality of life.


Why do we ask?

Research over the past two decades has clearly demonstrated that when those receiving care are asked to regularly and systematically rate their symptoms (PROMs) and their experiences of care and alliance (PREMs) – and those providing care actively use the information from the PROMs and PREMs to inform care – mental health outcomes improve.
