Mental Health and Counselling Subsidy Program

The cost of counselling can be a barrier for many individuals and families. The County of Wetaskiwin FCSS provides a subsidy to eligible individuals, couples, and/or families who are struggling with common, everyday issues to help afford the cost of short-term preventative counselling services.

The County of Wetaskiwin believes that to prevent crisis, providing support, guidance, encouragement, education, tools, and intervention strategies will promote positive social and emotional health.

Residents of Wetaskiwin County who meet the specific income thresholds may be eligible for subsidy.
  • Gross family income less than $75,000.00 AND
  • No access to employee insurance benefits (once an EAP is fully exhausted, the applicant may be eligible for a subsidized rate for additional sessions not exceeding maximums below).
