New partnership to offer more mental health services coming in January

November 8, 2019

The CWC PCN has partnered with the Calgary Counselling Centre to improve access to mental health services for patients of all members starting in January 2020.

The partnership will:

  • Provide all members with direct referral access to counselling services from Psychologists and clinical Social Workers
  • Involve no cost to patients or members

We are currently collaborating with the centre to refine the referral and communication process for our members, as well as to develop guidelines on the types of patients best suited for the service.

Referral details, tools and supporting materials will be posted to the Examiner once finalized, and an orientation and assistance for you and your team will also be provided to optimize use of the service.

About the Calgary Counselling Centre

The centre has a no waitlist policy and provides services to individuals, couples, families or groups. They have been helping Calgarians since 1962 and use practice-based research and evidence to continuously improve.

In 2018, they surpassed published benchmarks for improvement and recovery of patients by 37 percent and outperformed the stabilization of patients benchmark by 19 percent.
