Let’s Talk! Free Community Mental Health Services

Wednesday, January 25, 2017

Somerset West Community Health Centre is committed to providing residents of Ottawa with the services they need to improve their overall health and well-being. We recognize the growing concern over mental health issues. We also know that limited access to mental health services has an impact on people's well-being. That’s why we’re proud to offer a range of counselling and support services for residents of our service area. Like all our services, they are FREE.
