Mental Health Programs Update

To ensure that we minimize risk of exposure to COVID-19, we are modifying the mechanism of providing counselling and coaching services. If for any reason, you are uncomfortable with the changes below, please contact counselling@checkhimout.ca immediately:

  • Counselling and coaching programs will continue using secure video, phone, and internet resources. 
  • If you are in immediate need of assistance, and/or are experiencing severe thoughts of suicide, you may consider calling the Crisis Centre 1-800-784-2433
  • If you are a participant in the Volunteer Professional Counselling or Coaching with HIM Program, your sessions will not be suspended and will continue until your sessions are complete. This is important because when we delay sessions, others who are waiting for the program will need to wait longer. 
  • Your counsellor or coach will reach out to you to make arrangements for phone, or video counselling sessions. If you are unsure about what to do, please contact: counselling@checkhimout.ca

    • Confidentiality: 
      • Your counsellor will maintain the utmost confidentiality when you have your counselling sessions over the phone, or by video call. 
      • We encourage you to find a private location for you to have your sessions. If you cannot find a private location, please contact counselling@checkhimout.ca or your counsellor directly. 
      • Confidentiality can be different to navigate when you are not in the same room as your counsellor or coach. Feel free to talk to your counsellor or coach about this
