Mental Health

The North Durham Family Health Team provides brief therapy to patients of Medical Associates of Port Perry (MAPP), as well as, the broader North Durham community.  To provide equitable access to services, individual therapy appointments are reserved for those who are patients of MAPP and who do not have access to health care benefits or an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) through their employer. Clients can be supported with mild to moderate mental health concerns, daily coping and learning new skills. 

Mental health

Individual therapy is best suited to individuals who are voluntary and motivated to work towards specific goals. Brief therapy is not suitable for those experiencing crisis, severe mental health concerns or active psychosis, or those who require long term or intensive services. It is recommended that clients do not receive therapy from multiple providers. If you feel you would benefit from individual therapy, please book an Intake Appointment and complete the necessary Intake Form provided online.
