PCN Counselling Support Services

RASAR – Rapid Access Support and ReferralThe Primary Care Network (PCN) Counselling Support Services program is a rapid access program meant to assess, stabilize, support and refer on GP and family doctor patients with mild to moderate Mental Health or Substance Use concerns. Clients of this program will receive short term counselling from skilled counsellors to help address their needs. If it is determined that other services are required for further support then the PCN Counselling Support Services program will facilitate access to the most appropriate services in the community with a warm transfer from the program to the new service.

The PCN Counselling Support Services program is designed to respond to Doctor referrals within the same day and set an appointment with the patient within 48 hours of this initial contact. Short term counselling and needs assessment help to determine what other community services may be needed for the client. Once this is determined then the counsellor will work with the new community service and the client to provide a warm transfer from the PCN Counselling Support Services program to the appropriate community service(s).
