Accessing Services

The best way to connect with MRC services is by calling the office at 204-415-6797 during business hours to schedule an Orientation Session. Orientation sessions provide an overview of the programs and services offered at MRC. After the Orientation Session an Intake and Assessment session is necessary to register for services and programs. Men are then referred to the next step in acquiring access to Individual or Group Therapy Services. Some clients may be referred to other organizations to better meet their needs or when MRC programs are filled to capacity.

Short Term Therapy is for men experiencing particularly difficult times and in need of some support to feel less overwhelmed, redirect themselves and empowered to transform.

The average Short Term Therapy episode will run up to 8 sessions in weekly or biweekly sessions that last approximately one (1) hour in length. In these sessions, you and the therapist will explore the impact of stressors in everyday life, options to improve wellbeing, and ways to move towards the goal(s) that you established with the therapist.

Our therapists encourage growth and change for our clients and assist them in reaching their goal(s) through developing the skills they need to be empowered in their lives.
