The Family Wellness and Counselling team includes a committed team of highly trained professionals including Registered Social Workers and Counsellors. Team members understand the unique aspects of the military lifestyle and are committed to supporting families as they navigate experiences such as deployments and postings.
Individuals from the age of 5, couples, and families in need of support can access timely counselling sessions in a confidential place at the MFRC. Registered social workers and counsellors can provide short-term counselling and personalized support for military lifestyle related issues including:
- Mental health support
- Relationship issues
- Parenting challenges
- Coping with challenging situations
We also provide appropriate community referrals linking military families to local community supports to best meet their needs.
We encourage you to connect with us to see if we can help or if there is a resource in the community better suited to provide assistance.
Appointments can be made by contacting the MFRC Information Line and leaving a message. You can also reach a social worker directly via the Intake Phone Line or by email.
Before you receive your first appointment, please download the Confidentiality Services Form, fill it out and email it as instructed. If you have a virtual counselling session, there is also a list of tips for clients on how to prepare.
