How to Access this Service

We usually start with an initial consultation in person or over the phone (whatever is most comfortable for you) to discuss your health and wellness concerns and any safety concerns. These consultations are available to anyone, including other agencies and families with young children. If you are in crisis or need immediate help, we will link you to appropriate services inside or outside SOAHAC, and to emergency services if needed. Please note that not all mental health and addictions services are available at all SOAHAC sites.
