Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program
The Ontario Structured Psychotherapy (OSP) program provides access to free, evidence-based psychotherapy and related approaches for individuals 18+ with depression, anxiety and anxiety-related concerns.
OSP is structured to provide short-term support, focused on a particular problem or goal, using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Different treatment options are offered based on the level of care that meets each client’s individualized needs. Many clients will begin with treatments that combine self-led strategies, such as the BounceBack program which provides guided workbooks, with support from a coach by telephone. Additional services include structured group or one-on-one therapy, virtually or in person within the community.
