The Mental Health Team works with clients of the Health Centre. We offer individual, couple, family and group therapy for all registered clients of the Health Centre as well as psychology and psychiatry services for primary health care clients (those registered with a doctor or nurse practitioner). We also offer chronic illness management for clients with severe mental illness.
Our team of mental health professionals provides care in common areas, including…
- Chronic Illness Management
- Smoking Cessation
If you are a client or program participant with the London InterCommunity Health Centre and feel that you require additional mental health care supports, please talk to your health care provider.

Smoking Treatment for Ontario Patients (STOP) Program:
As of February 2014, the London InterCommunity Health Centre is a registered site of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH)’s STOP Program. This program is a province-wide initiative that delivers smoking cessation treatment and counseling support to eligible Ontario smokers who wish to quit smoking.
Since it began in 2005, the STOP Program has provided free smoking cessation medication and counselling support to over 100,000 Ontarians who wanted to quit smoking. To learn more about STOP, please visit the official website at: www.nicotinedependenceclinic.com.
At the Health Centre, this is a program available for registered medical clients only as it requires the involvement of a physician and/or a nurse practitioner. In addition to receiving Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) clients receive counselling and other supports and participate in a number of surveys with the Centre for Addition and Mental Health about their progress.
