If your therapist introduced you to Greenspace to help measure and track your progress, congratulations. Research shows that it can have a huge impact on helping you get better faster and there is no fee for you to participate.
Using Greenspace to find a therapist is completely free. Once matched, sessions are not covered by Government health plans and prices range from $80 to $250 per hour depending on the therapist you are matched with - as each provider sets his or her own fees. Your employee benefits insurance may apply to these sessions and when using Greenspace, our case managers will work with you to find a therapist that fits your budget and insurance coverage.
This is unfortunately the common structure for mental healthcare in Canada, as psychologists, social workers and psychotherapists are not covered under OHIP (or other provincial health plans). There are generally limited public sector services available, as mental health is treated as separate from physical health in Canada.
