Mental Health Assessment Services

Accessing mental health services at HQ starts with screening. After indicating interest in mental health services, you will be asked 4 screening questions. These questions will help us identify the most appropriate next step in assessment for you.

Care Coordination

HQ’s mental health team, with the support of peer navigators, connects people to supports that fall outside of HQ’s scope. This may include referrals to housing, social programs, or other mental health supports. People are connected to service navigation services through HQ’s mental health and sexual health programs.
