About the SI Pathway

Family Services Windsor-Essex and Windsor Regional Hospital have worked to create a pathway from in-patient to out-patient community care.

This pathway can provide you with individual and group counselling to address your thoughts of suicide.

Each session will aim to teach you helpful strategies to use when you are feeling low. We will spend time talking about suicide, how we pay attention to our thoughts, our behaviours, and the significance of hope.

Research tells us that to best position you for success, your family and doctor must be involved in your care. This important circle of people will surround and support you.

What you get

  • 6 individual counselling sessions
  • 4 group sessions
  • Regular caring contacts
  • Access to surveys to monitor how you’re feeling
  • Access to virtual wellness modules
  • Access to additional group offerings
