WHO WE ARE

TALK NOW is a service offered in partnership by Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC), Peterborough Youth Services, Canadian Mental Health Association HKPR, Four Counties Addiction Services team, Kinark Child and Family Services and the Peterborough Family Health Team. Each organization is combining existing resources to staff the virtual clinic. TALK NOW is staffed by:

  • A Nurse Practitioner

  • Therapists

SEEKING CARE

TALK NOW provides more timely access to mental health services to people of all ages in our community while they may be on a waitlist for care. Patients are not limited to one visit and are welcome to book an in-person, or virtual appointment as often as needed. When there is shared (joint) custody of children age 11 or younger, consent of both parents/caregivers to participate in the service is required. A health card is not required to access care.

HOW TO REFER TO TALK NOW

No referral is necessary at the TALK NOW clinic. Patients seeking care can call 705-876-5826 to be connected with a mental health professional.
