Mental Health Promotion and Addiction Prevention


January 25, 2018 Central Health is proud to introduce it newest service Doorways - a new single-session, walk-in counseling service in Gander and Grand Falls-Windsor.

Doorways offers single-session counselling services provided by a team of Mental Health and Addictions Clinicians. When you arrive, please tell the registration staff you are here for Doorways. You will be given a brief questionnaire to complete and meet with a clinician for approximately 50 minutes to address a single mental health and/or addictions issue like depression, anxiety, bullying, coping, grief/loss, addictions, relationships, and/or stress. You will leave with a plan outlining next steps to help reach your desired goals.

DoorWays will launch in Gander on January 25th and in Grand Falls-Windsor on January 30th.
