About Us

The Access Point Northwest

Community Mental Health services within Alpha Court, Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) - Thunder Bay, St. Joseph's Care Group (SJCG), and Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences (TBRHSC) have come together to offer a single access point and referral form for many of the services that they offer.

These organizations offer access to programs in outpatient mental health, supportive housing, case management, and chronic pain management that provide a range of options for clients needing these services. The purpose of the single access point is to reduce the confusion around where to go for help and the need to fill out multiple referral forms. A brief description of the broad mandate of each organization is below. For more information, please go to the organization's specific website.
