Join Dr. Margaret Drewlo, Clinical Educator at Kelty's Key to learn about their free online therapy program, VCH Online Therapy.
Kelty’s Key provides tailored Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that can be used as a self-help tool, entirely free-of-charge. Therapists can also use the Kelty’s Key platform combined with therapeutic email when working with clients. Developed by psychologists, Kelty’s Key uses an evidence-based curriculum that aims to provide support to people experiencing challenges with mental health due to:
- Chronic pain
- Panic disorder
- Substance use
- Persistent complex bereavement disorder
The Kelty's Key chronic pain course includes modules on psychoeducation, pacing, mindfulness, problem-solving, values, thought challenging, chronic pain beliefs, and core beliefs.
Kelty’s Key was made possible by a generous donation from the Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation and the Royal Bank of Canada.
