Mental Health in Burlington, Ontario

Thank you for looking for a therapist in Burlington on GoodTherapy.org. Mental health is a significant social issue in Burlington. According to a recent study by the Burlington Community Foundation, 2 out of 3 people have been touched by a mental health issue, with half the instances involving a family member and 20% involving a friend. In such cases, depression is the most common mental health concern, followed by anxiety.

These issues are especially prominent amongst youth. Eleven percent of 15 year olds have thoughts of suicide, 27% said they had too many problems in their lives, and 4 out of 10 12 year olds regularly experience bullying. It is important for youth to know they are not alone, and for adults to be aware of the issues that can affect them.

In addition to therapists listed on GoodTherapy.org, Burlington residents have access to a number of mental health services. The Summit House, part of the Summit House and Outreach Programs, provides supportive affordable housing for people with diagnosed mental conditions, as well as help for the homeless and those at risk of becoming homeless. In addition, the Reach Out Center for Kids offers prevention programs and mental health support for youth, and the Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital Mental Health Program provides emergency psychiatric care and educational groups. Those needing help or looking to learn more about mental health may also contact the Ontario Mental Health Helpline and the Burlington branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association.

For people looking to pursue a professional career in therapy, the psychology departments at nearby McMaster University and the University of Toronto offer a full range of courses at the undergraduate and graduate level, covering everything from human sexuality to positive psychology.

All of these efforts in and around Burlington are a sign of the growing importance of mental health, a community awareness which is increasing every day. The recent passage of the Mental Health Act and the Regulated Health Professionals Act in Ontario ensures that resources are continually being extended to address the community's mental health needs.
