Mental Health Resources

The Saskatchewan Health Authority is limiting in-person appointments for non-emergent concerns, including mental health and addictions services. Staff are providing services through telephone and other online methods.

If someone has a concern, in Meadow Lake they can contact the Mental Health outpatient services at 306-236-1580. Individuals can also access services for urgent/emergent issue at an Emergency Department. The intake number is also posted on the door at the Mental Health office in Meadow Lake.

Mental Health staff in Meadow Lake are in regular contact with community agencies and partners, and Community Mental Health Nurses continue to do home visits and follow-up in the community. This includes work with vulnerable populations.

Individuals can also contact HealthLine 811, where people can speak with a Mental Health worker.
