Counselling and Wellness
Mamaway Wiidokdaadwin’s Counselling and Wellness Services team is responsible for delivering counselling and therapeutic programs to Mamaway patients.
Patients of Mamaway can access 1:1 counselling to support a deeper exploration of life, identify and change patterns of behaviour, or reconcile past traumas with the overall goal of improving health and wellness as a part of their health care in the interdisciplinary team.
To access 1:1 counselling, simply call the clinic to book an intake with our RN to become registered to our clinic. At the time if your intake, the RN will ask you which services you are interested in. If you are already a patient of our clinic, you can call the clinic and let our Medical Office Assistant know that you would like to self refer for counselling.
If you are not registering to Mamaway as a patient, you may still be access counselling through external mental health partners of our clinic. You can call our clinic or contact our COVID Navigator for more information and eligibility requirements. Please note that this service cannot be guaranteed.
