Psychotherapy - Salvation Army Canada


Psychotherapy is an important component of mental health services offered in the community. However, psychotherapy is not generally covered by provincial or federal health benefits. Many of the people served by The Salvation Army cannot afford to pay privately for the needed Psychotherapy sessions. For this reason, some Ministry Units have begun to offer Psychotherapy or Clinical Counselling as part of the ministry provided to the community.

Below are some documents that may be of assistance to Ministry Units either considering or providing psychotherapy. More documents will be added as these become available.
