How can clinical counsellors help plan members? Clinical counsellors use best practices and evidence-based techniques to help individuals, couples, and families navigate challenges. Learning new skills encourages self-empowerment, which improves emotional and mental well-being.
A clinical counsellor opens the door to new perspectives, strategies, and coping skills that provide people with choices, insight, and positive change. These counsellors help people recognize their own strengths. Counselling can provide relief from depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions.
Clinical counsellors registered with the Saskatchewan College of Psychologists and/or with the Saskatchewan Association of Social Workers are covered under the psychology/social work benefit in the Extended Health Care Plan. Plan members can use a yearly maximum of up to $2,000 per insured person per year.
