Health Care Worker Assist Service

As the province works to stop the spread of COVID-19, there is increased pressure on health care workers in Ontario across the all sectors.

In response to the "echo pandemic" of mental illness due to these uncertain times, Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences launched the Health Care Worker Assist Service (HCWAssist). This service provides virtual, rapid access to mental health services for all health care workers across the province who are dealing with increased anxiety and depression.

Providing skills that enhance resilience and reduce symptom burden, clinicians of this vital program will assess the individual’s needs and offer a plan of care utilizing a variety of services which may include system navigation, crisis planning or brief therapy intervention.

Thank you for supporting our #HealthCareHeroes.
