Coalition for Access to Psychotherapy (CAP)


We are pleased to announce that the McGill Psychotherapy Process Research Group is a member of the Coalition for Access to Psychotherapy (CAP). CAP was created following the publication in December 2012 of the report on mental health services by the Health and Welfare Commissioner of Québec in which equitable access to psychotherapy services, as part of a treatment plan for mental health problems, was identified as an unmet need.  
CAP is composed of a number of organizations such as ours, as well as experts in the field of health services who believe that psychotherapy services should be available to individuals of all ages affected by a mental disorder.  Therefore, CAP’s objective is to rally public and government support towards the implementation of psychotherapy services within the public healthcare system.  CAP’s activities will focus on representations to governmental bodies and on public education with respect to the need for psychotherapy services and the benefits, to individuals and their families and to society in general, of access to such services.
A link to the CAP’s web site is available on our web site or you can access it at We invite you to read it to learn more about CAP: its members, its objectives and its activities. You will also find a number of reports and studies that describe the need for, and benefits of access to psychotherapy services. The CAP’s web site will also keep you up-to-date on the initiatives undertaken by CAP’s spokespeople and members.

We hope you enjoy reading it!
