Did you know that a single visit to a therapist is easily over $100? Also, even if you have health insurance that covers these costs, most plans have a limited amount of coverage that can only cover a few sessions; the rest of the visits are out of pocket. 


With 1/5 Canadians being affected by mental illness each year, therapy should be more affordable and accessible. Furthermore, many teens experience mental illness, and, if it goes untreated, can get much worse. Lowering the cost of therapy would have a very positive impact on many people. 

Our proposition is that the government covers some therapy fees based on the patient's household income. For your average family, this would be greatly helpful. The patient would have to show a letter from their healthcare provider to receive this monetary support. Funding therapy would be a great investment in this province's citizens.

I can’t imagine where I would be if my family couldn’t afford my therapy. We truly hope we can lower the cost of mental health resources and services so other people can benefit from therapy like myself and so many others have.
