i think i may be having some kind of depressive episode right now.

while i've been in counselling for depression before, i've never been diagnosed by a doctor. i think now might be the time to do it. i'm a mcgill student, but only until december. should i go to the drop-in clinic there to be screened? if so, would they be able to refer me to services off-campus?

if not, do most of the CLSCs have doctors who speak fluent english? (is a CLSC even the best option for me at this point?) my french is intermediate, but i'm not sure how well i can communicate about my mental health in french.

also, i am still using ontario health insurance. do most CLSCs take OHIP, or will i need to go through the reimbursal process myself? if so, about how much would an appointment cost?

thank you for your help.

Go to the drop-in clinic at McGill while you're still a student there. Taking advantage of that while you can would be a very excellent idea.

As for the OHIP, unfortunately I don't know anything about that. But I don't think you should have any problem finding English-speaking doctors.

xoxo Good luck! Please report back here with your updates if you feel comfortable doing so. :)
