ABOUT THE NEWLY INSTITUTE
We believe that mental health treatment is in drastic need of a paradigm shift, and our practice was founded to provide long-lasting change within this industry, our community, and with our patients.

addition to this, The Newly Institute has a treatment stream for Traumatic Psychological Injury (TPI) programs contracted through Workers Compensation Board (WCB).
