5.  You can check out other services: 

There are other sources in the Guelph-Wellingon of assessment and treatment of social, emotional, behavioural, or mental health problems, and support for parents and families. Some provide services for free and some charge based upon a sliding scale. You can find these in the Wellington Dufferin Resource Guide
There are also many private services available in the Guelph community. You can find them by searching "therapists" "counsellors" and "regulated mental health professionals". Make sure you inquire about the training, specialization, and regulation of the service providers you consider. While there are many outstanding therapists available, not everyone will have graduate training to work with children and youth, or to work with individuals with mental health challenges.  It's okay to ask.
