There are two options when accessing the mental health system in New Brunswick; the first is through an individual’s family physician. That physician will assess the individual and decide whether to treat alone or provide a referral to a psychiatrist or counselor. The second is self-referral to a mental health centre.
If your workplace has an Employee Assistance Program, you are able to access counseling services.
In New Brunswick waiting lists are a reality. Wait times vary depending on the severity of the problem, where you live and how many people are seeking treatment in your region.
Note: The Canadian Mental Health Association of New Brunswick does not provide professional counseling services.
