Consultation Assessment Time-Limited Therapy Clinic (CATT)

The Crisis and Consultation, Assessment & Time Limited Therapy (CATT) Outpatient Mental Health program offers OHIP-covered, short-term, CBT-based psychotherapy support for individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, coping difficulties and stress-related issues. We provide patients six individual sessions and resource navigation support.

While our program utilizes a trauma-informed approach, we do not offer an intensive trauma program at this time. 

Our program is one of several clinics within the Outpatient Adult Mental Health Services at Michael Garron Hospital. The therapists are master-level clinicians in psychology and social work specializing in short-term psychotherapy services.


  • Primarily for individuals who do not have the financial resources/access to additional health insurance for private counseling
  • Individuals who are not currently receiving counseling/psychotherapy from other mental health providers or privately in the community
  • Individuals that reside within the Michael Garron Hospital catchment area

Referrals must be made exclusively by physicians.

Please contact our office if you have any further inquiries about referral to our program.

If you are in need of immediate help, please go to your nearest emergency department or call 911.
