Cogent is founded on providing clear, concise and compelling psychological assessment and therapy services to men. Cogent focusses on engaging men in therapy by addressing issues specific to men’s health and by providing psychological services in a format that respects men’s expectations of discreet, effective, professional and edifying health services.
It’s time for men to address mental health.
One million Canadian men suffer from major depressive disorder each year. Three of every four completed suicides in Canada are by men. The prevalence of alcohol use disorder is twice as high in men with another mental health diagnosis than in the general population. One third of Canadian men worry that talking about mental health at work could put their job at risk.
Men are just as likely as women to have mental health issues yet are far less likely to utilize traditional mental health services. Men are more likely to believe that mental health services are difficult to access, ineffective and invasive.
At Cogent, Ontario’s new mental health clinic focussed solely on supporting men, we’re changing that.
It’s time for men to have a new mental health experience
