Rapid Access Counselling
CFSPA delivers single-session-format Rapid Access Counselling in partnership with Family Service Saskatchewan. The service is for everyone and offers a conversation with a professional counsellor that could help you identify solutions, and build on your existing strengths.
Rapid access mental health services are for individuals, couples, and families. We can help with concerns such as anxiety, depression, addictions, suicidal ideation, stress, relationship conflict, separation and divorce, domestic violence, and parenting.
Though it is single-session-format, needs/complexity often require several sessions. Referrals to other counseling may also be provided if requested or for personal fit. Rapid Access Counselling is a province-wide initiative with numerous counselors throughout the province all available to you through virtual and in-person counseling.
Sessions are offered in a variety of formats including:
Kent Slemming our Rapid Access Counsellor provides this service at the CFS office as well as other locations in the City.
