Psychological Treatment Program

Psychological support services are provided by a group of ALS trained, dedicated Psychologists and Registered Clinical Counselors who volunteer their time to provide much-needed therapy and counseling to people affected by ALS.  For people without extended health benefits, this service can be provided Pro Bono.
