Here are other some options to seek help:
- If you have a family physician or primary care provider such as a nurse practitioner, discuss your concerns with them. Health care providers who know your child, pre-teen or teen are helpful, as they may have important family history to consider when assisting you.
- If you don’t have a regular health care provider, you can go to a walk-in clinic, or Access Centre. The list of phone numbers available can also assist you in finding a family doctor, mobile clinic, or other health service provider.
- If you live in a Northern community with a nursing station, talk to the staff there. They will be able to provide you with further information.
- In all areas of Manitoba, , your local Regional Health Authority will have information on available resources in your community.
If you need assistance on finding your local regional health authority’s contact information, the organization “Regional Health Authorities of Manitoba” (RHAM) has a site with all of its resource information on one page. Visit www.rham.mb.ca and click on “list of RHAs.”
You can also call your local hospital, health station, doctor’s office or public health office to find out about more local resources.
If there is a community mental health worker in your area, that would be a good place to start. You can ask a community helping professional like a school guidance counsellor, doctor, public health nurse for this contact.
