We're here to help

Dealing with a mental health challenge and not knowing where to start can be overwhelming. The Ontario Psychological Association wants to make finding help easier than ever.


What is

This service provides hassle-free and quick connection to a psychologist who best matches your needs and preferences. You get to choose what’s most important to you: wait times, location, virtual or in-person meetings and area of specialization.

The short questionnaire will take no longer than 5 minutes. Most clients can expect to be referred to a psychologist within 2 business days to book an appointment.

Is there a cost to use this service?

You will be asked to cover the cost of the sessions - psychologist fees vary between $160 and $240 per hour currently. Before you book a session, check whether any of the costs are covered by benefits you may have through work. Fee information will be provided upfront when you are contacted by the psychologist.

If you feel you qualify for financial aid programs (such as sliding scale fees) please contact the OPA directly at (416) 961-5552 or [email protected] to assist you.

Who can use askforhelptoday?

This pilot offer is currently available to anyone in Ontario.

Can I meet with my psychologists virtually?

Yes, our psychologists offer in-person sessions, as well as telephone and video sessions.

Will my health information remain confidential?

Yes, your privacy is very important to us. Ontario Psychological Association (OPA) members abide by provincial regulations with regard to patient privacy. Strata Health will only use the data for the purpose of providing matching criteria to OPA.

*Disclaimer: Please note that at this time, a large proportion of the registered psychologists are only facilitating virtual sessions.*
