The NWT Community Counselling Program provides on-the-ground access to mental health services in all of the regions. Trained counsellors are available for you to talk about any problems that you may be dealing with in your life as well as provide assistance or referrals to other services that could help you.
This free service is available for all residents. Counsellors live in 19 communities. In the other 16 communities, counsellors provide phone support and in-person counselling on a fly-in basis.
The goal of this program is to make mental health services easy for you to access.
If you need help or just want to talk, please call your community counselling program:
