Because Mental Health Can’t Wait

New Path offers a range of free and high-quality child and youth mental health counselling services across Simcoe County. To keep our clients and staff safe, our preference at this time is to offer virtual and call-in services.

We recognize that this may not be the best option for all of our families and youth, and we continue to offer in-person child and youth mental health services when necessary. For in-person appointments, a COVID screening, medical-grade mask (if you don’t have a medical-grade mask, one will be provided to you), physical distancing, proper hand hygiene and thorough cleaning protocols are in place. Should you feel unwell in any way please stay home and contact your New Path worker to arrange a phone or virtual session.

Please call 705-725-7656 or email us to book your appointment.
