WSIB COMMUNITY MENTAL HEALTH PROGRAM

Did you know that the new WSIB Community Mental Health Program was launched on January 1st, 2018 making it quicker and easier to receive psychological assessment and treatment after a workplace accident or incident? Through this program WSIB can fund the cost of psychological treatment with a registered psychologist to help workers feel better and recover .  Our entire team of registered psychologists are approved providers under this new program.

HOW IT WORKS

Workers must first register a claim with WSIB by calling 1-800-387-0750. Once your claim is registered a psychologist on our team can conduct your initial screening call. During this call our clinician will want to determine your eligibility for the program and ensure that your case matches their skill set.

Upon completion of the initial screening call our clinician will contact WSIB and request a psychological assessment in order to understand your difficulties and to guide treatment When this assessment has been approved  a member of our team will contact you to schedule an appointment.

After completing the assessment your psychologist will submit the assessment report and any psychological treatment recommendations to WSIB .Once psychological treatment is approved you will be contacted to begin scheduling your appointments.  Our goals for treatment are always to reduce distress, improve wellness, and help workers resolve and better manage any workplace injuries/difficulties. If you’ve experienced a workplace injury or incident and feel this program could benefit you please feel free to contact us for more information on how to get started.
