Welcome to the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals

The Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists is now the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals. This new name continues to represent our diverse membership and the collaborative roles we play in the continuum of mental healthcare while highlighting the competencies of our membership. 

The name has changed yet the OAMHP remains equally committed to the growth and the enhancement for the access to and the provision of mental healthcare in Ontario.

Suzanne Dennison, President of the OACCPP and Executive Director Maryann Istiloglu announced the rebranding and relaunch of the association following the recent vote at the Annual General Meeting in Toronto on September 21st, 2019. The name change follows extensive consultations with the Association’s members, advisors and Board of Directors.

“The consultations have been a wonderful opportunity to assess and redefine our long-term goals, strengthen our messaging with the policymakers and to launch an improved, forward-looking Association designed to be the best in Canada for mental health professionals,” said Dennison. “We’re updating our look and our strategies in order to continually improve the access to and provision of mental healthcare services in Ontario. It is an exhilarating time as we prepare the Association for the next decade.”

A new website is coming. Watch this space for further updates.
