Assessment & Advocacy

Removing barriers and providing support

The WSIB Community Mental Health Program is designed to give people access to psychological assessment and timely counselling treatment. This program is a collaboration between the WSIB and the Ontario Psychological Association.

You qualify for the WSIB Community Mental Health Program if you are covered by WSIB and you:

  • have a registered WSIB claim or recurrence
  • have experienced a psychological reaction after a work-related physical injury, or
  • have experienced a significant psychological response to a workplace incident or cumulative incidents, such as traumatic mental stress, chronic mental stress, or first responder post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Our psychologists are registered providers with the WSIB Community Mental Health Program.
