The Homewood Approach:Experience, Innovation, Personalization, Assessment, Sustainability


Homewood Health is Canada’s leader in mental health and addiction services. Founded more than 135 years ago, Homewood has grown into a national healthcare network with more than 4,500 employees and clinical experts working in more than 40 counselling offices, four Homewood Counselling Centres and three inpatient treatment facilities. The Homewood Counselling Centre in Calgary is part of that family and benefits from the distinctive approach that makes the Homewood organization vital to the mental health of more than 200,000 Canadians every year.

Our approach at the Homewood Counselling Centre reflects the Homewood approach nationwide. We bring more than 13 decades of clinical experience to our work and marry that with a relentless pursuit of innovation. Our counselling strategies are validated by experience, of course, but also by evidence provided by high-impact research. We founded the Homewood Research Institute to help our organization lead, support, evaluate and adopt the best new ideas in mental health and addiction treatment to ensure that our clients receive the full benefit of the constant evolution in health sciences.

With those tools at our disposal, we also tailor our approach to your needs as an individual. Your individualized assessment provides the roadmap for your treatment, both initially and as your treatment continues into the recovery management phase when we stay with you for the long run by building a personalized program to help you sustain the progress you make.

Experience, innovation, personalization, assessment and sustainability – these are the elements of the Homewood approach.
