About Dalton Associates
It is our mission to make mental health services accessible to Ontarians; a mission that has not only allowed Dalton Associates to expand across and out of province but has ensured that the services we offer are of the highest quality, both clinically and administratively. We believe that the unique combination of our wrap around service model, strong administrative support, experience with partnerships and program development, accessible services, use of evidence-based mental health assessments, and quality assurance program set us apart from other providers in our industry. Dalton Associates also has the advantage of offering a large roster of qualified and experienced mental health practitioners (e.g., Registered Psychologists, Registered Psychotherapists, and Registered Social Workers), dedicated solely to direct client care, from which clients may choose. We are in essence, a “one-stop-shop” or “mental health services hub” and our services are covered by most private extended health benefit plans.
Our programming for emergency response personnel is guided by our knowledge of the occupational culture of public safety personnel (and the nuances of the different organizational and professional cultures within this overarching group), our commitment to working towards sustainable wellness with our clients, and our ability to work and integrate with existing resources (e.g., employee health benefits plans, internal peer support programs, specialized inpatient, and intensive outpatient programs, etc.) to support whole-person wellness.
Founded in 1995, Dalton Associates is a mental health services organization that provides specialized and quality assured psychological, psychotherapy, social work, and behavioural health services that are culturally sensitive, safe, accessible, and timely.
