Exciting Training Opportunity!

Mind Space Seeks Family Physician Facilitators. Explore full details below, including how to apply.


Mind Space represents a collective of passionate physicians who use group medical visit fee codes to provide mental health skills training through the publicly-funded health care system, offering both virtual and in-person groups, across the province.

There are currently three foundational Mind Space programs: 

  • CBT Skills Foundations 
  • Skills for Success: ADHD Strategies for Adults
  • Raising Resilient Kids Parenting

All groups are self-management courses, delivered as 8-week series of 90-120 minute group sessions. The CBT Skills Foundations (our most established course) is targeted at anxiety, depression and stress. It integrates basic neuroscience concepts with introductory mindfulness & cognitive behavioural therapy skills. ~ The program has helped thousands of patients across the province and 93% of completers report confidence in their ability to manage mental health symptoms!


As part of the program’s provincial spread initiative, family physicians within select regions will be recruited to be trained as CBT Skills Foundation facilitators. Through the CME accredited advanced facilitator training program, which is longitudinal over 6-18 months, these physicians will become equipped to deliver the program as laid out in the CBT Skills Workbook, for virtual groups and/or in-person groups in the region.
