Our Access Mental Health & Substance Use Services (MHSU) aims to provide a safe space where you can be connected to the service or services that meet your needs. 

To self-refer, call 310-MHSU (6478) or visit your local MHSU Centre. Or feel free to speak to your family doctor or nurse practitioner to ask for a referral. 

When you contact MHSU, an intake clinician will ask you a series of screening questions with your permission to understand you better, and connect you with the right team, program or resources. 

Primary care providers or agencies, please complete the Community MHSU Referral Form and fax it to your local MHSU Centre, or call 310-MHSU (6478).
