Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP) Services

The Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP) program provides individuals with publicly-funded, evidence-based, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) and related approaches to help manage depression, anxiety, and anxiety-related conditions. CBT is a structured, time-limited therapy that is problem-focused and goal-oriented and teaches practical strategies and skills. The OSP program provides treatment for: depression and low mood, generalized anxiety and worry, unexpected panic attacks and agoraphobic fears, social anxiety and performance fears, specific fears, health anxiety, obsessive-compulsive concerns, other anxiety and stress-related problems, and post-traumatic stress.

How do I access the program?

In South Georgian Bay (Wasaga Beach, Collingwood, and Clearview), referrals for the OSP program are being coordinated by Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care, and services are accessed at the South Georgian Bay Community Health Centre. You do not have to be a client at the South Georgian Bay CHC to receive services from the OSP program.

If you are a psychiatrist, a primary care provider (family doctor, nurse practitioner), or other health care professional, you can refer clients into the OSP program. Alternatively, clients may sign up for the program themselves.
