Compass Staff Redeployment

April 23, 2021


Due to increases in demand for our more intensive child and youth mental health services, Compass has made the following changes to our services.

Effective Monday, April 26th, and to meet the surging client demand for our more intensive services, mindSPACE will be reduced to 2 days a week only, on Tuesdays and Thursdays with no change in hours (8:30 AM to 6:30 PM). MindSPACE Sessions will be offered at the time the call is received and will no longer be scheduled for a later date. Clients who call mindSPACE on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays will be encouraged to call back on Tuesday and/or Thursday. These changes to the mindSPACE service delivery are necessary to build further capacity to service children, youth and families who need more intensive services.

If you require immediate assistance, please call the Crisis Intervention Services at Health Sciences North at 1-877-847-1101.

The changes above will be in effect from Monday, April 26th until June 30th however Compass will continue to monitor the situation and implement further changes as needed.
