This section provides you with general information about the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP) Program and how your personal information will be handled. Please read through and bring any questions you might have to your initial meeting.

What is the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program?

The Ontario Structured Psychotherapy program is an initiative supported by the Ministry of Health (MOH). The goal of the OSP program is to expand the availability of psychotherapy and related approaches for Ontarians experiencing depression and anxiety-based concerns. OSP services are provided by a qualified professional.

Any "Yes" responses to the eligibility requirements mean that your patient is not a good fit for OSP - Central North. Do not send the referral in that case, rather navigate your patient to another appropriate service.

Please note, your appointment time is not confirmed until this form is completed in its entirety.
