The Ministry of Health, in partnership with Ontario Health, is recommending increased use of virtual care to limit, where appropriate, person-to-person contact in community mental health and addictions care.
On-site services at Amethyst are currently postponed though we are offering our counselling services remotely. We continue to work with our system partners to accept new clients. And we will continue to adjust our services as circumstances evolve.
If you require immediate assistance, please follow the advice of Ottawa Public Health, and contact the Ottawa Distress Centre at 613-238-3311 or the Detox Centre at 613-241-1525. Amethyst can be reached by calling 613-563-0363. Please check here for updates.
