I am so pleased to share the news that I have received my acceptance as a Registered Psychotherapist (qualifying) to the new College of Registered Psychotherapists in Ontario (CRPO). After a grueling graduate degree while balancing work, family, school and clinical work, it’s gratifying to take this next step.
What is the new College and what does it mean for the average Ontarian?
Mental health has received unprecedented coverage and heightened awareness within the public sphere, which is very exciting for mental health professionals. More and more, we see people feeling safe to come forward as they consider being more proactive about their own mental health, as well as seeking treatment for existing disorders. In Ontario, we have to take our health care into our own hands. And when it comes to mental health care, our system is unfortunately, not universal.
