We are not a crisis centre. This means that for individuals who are not currently being seen by one of our practitioners, we cannot guarantee services with an immediate or short delay, either by phone or in person. If you are completely emotionally overwhelmed or in danger of hurting or killing yourself, we recommend that you present to the ER of your nearest hospital, or call one of the following numbers:
That being said, sometimes a crisis presents itself while someone is already in therapy; in this case, we urge you to use the services listed above in the short-term, but to also contact your therapist as soon as possible. While he or she may not be able to respond right away, he or she will attempt to contact you to assess the situation and direct you to the right resources, and if appropriate and possible, offer you a session sooner than your next scheduled appointment. Treatment goals may be re-evaluated at this point, and if your treating professional cannot meet your needs given the severity of the crisis, may refer you to another service either in addition to or instead of the work you are currently doing.
