We want to share some of the helpful things we know about that may help you connect with the information or support you need

We know that private treatment is not an option for many people. Here are some publicly funded and low-cost treatment options.

These services are either free or low cost/sliding fee scale - many of them unfortunately have waitlists.

If our waitlist is closed, you live outside of Ontario, or we don't seem to be a good fit for you, here are some other private treatment options.

These are some of the other DBT clinics in the GTA and outside of the GTA that we know of and recommend.
