Discovery Meeting

Mental health services for children and youth begin by calling CONTACT HN to book a face-to-face Discovery Meeting with a Therapist.   The purpose is to hear from you and/or your child about what is going well and what isn’t going so great.  It’s a time to talk about what you would like to be different and your ideas to make that happen.  It provides a time to explore together service options that fit for you and your family. 

Discovery is a step you can take to help you live the life you want to live.  We’ll explore the different paths to wellness. Some people might want to use a virtual self-help program while others may find help with a community service that’s a good match.  You might decide that working with a HN REACH Therapist or Counsellor to explore possibilities fits best for you and/or your family.  You may even find coming to a Discovery meeting is enough as you already have the supports and resources you need. 

Whatever you decide, you will leave with a Collaborative Service Guide (a service plan) that records the key points of the conversation and highlights service options, goals and next steps.

Before you come please think about:

  • The goals you have and what you are hoping for from the appointment.
  • What you want to be different and what you want to stay the same.
  • What is working already, even just a little bit?
  • If you make one small change today, what could it be?
