Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP) offers free, short-term, evidence-based cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for adults experiencing depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related concerns.  

CBT teaches practical lifelong skills such as:

  • how to be more aware of the impact your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs have on your emotional and behavioural reactions 
  • how to identify and change thinking patterns that may be negative, inaccurate and contribute to your depression or anxiety
  • how to change unhelpful behaviours such as avoidance, and
  • how to use problem solving skills to manage challenging situations. 

It is well supported by research showing that people’s symptoms are reduced, and their quality of life is enhanced.

We offer support ranging from self-led tools (with support from a coach) to weekly, one-on-one or group therapy sessions. Treatment is matched to the level of care that best meets your needs, in person or virtually.

If you are willing to take an active role in your mental health you may benefit from OSP. Learn more about treatment.
