You can filter by resource  location (whether its in a particular country or available globally), cost (free, sliding scale, or low-cost (< $100)), method of access, and concern (anxiety, information for women, LGBTQ2+, etc.).


3. ​What information do you collect from users of the data bank?

MentNav does not collect or store any personal data from our data bank users. For more information about any information we collect within our data bank and across our platform, please see our Privacy Policy.


4. ​Are all of the resources you have listed free to access?

Some of the resources we have listed are free to access, but not all. You can see which resources are free by setting the filter to “free” resources.

6. ​I’ve filled out the form to register a resource. Now what?

Thank you for registering a resource! Over the next few weeks, we’ll check your submission against our data bank criteria and then add it to our data bank once it has passed all checks. To find out more about these criteria, please see the “Criteria for Inclusion” section below.


7. How do you make sure the resources in the data bank are safe and of good quality?

We use a set of strict criteria (provided below this FAQ section) to assess whether or not a resource is safe for users and appropriate for our data bank. Please note that listing a resource in the data bank does not mean that we endorse it or its services, and that we are not responsible for the content or services of the resources listed in our data bank. MentNav reserves the right to deny or remove any resources we deem unsuitable or unsafe.

8. How do you ensure that the information provided for the resources listed is up-to-date?

Before each resource is listed in the live data bank, we check the resource to make sure the information we have about it is up-to-date. We conduct these checks every year in December.

​9. How do I make a complaint about one of the resources listed or MentNav?

Should you have concerns about anything in our data bank or our processes, please reach out to us by emailing

Criteria for Inclusion

We want to make sure anyone who accesses and makes use of the resources in our data bank feels safe doing so. For this reason, we only list resources in our data bank that fit the following criteria:

  • Free, low-cost, or sliding scale.

  • Are offered by a non-profit/501c3/charitable organization or, in limited circumstances, a public benefit organization.

  • No independent blogs, social media accounts (including Instagram, Facebook groups, etc.).

  • No private practitioners or treatment centres.

  • Resources from federal or national governments (.gov), as well as local governments, so long as they are not asking users to purchase goods or service.

  • The resource is nondiscriminatory (age, gender, religion, sexuality, political affiliation, etc.) and not potentially harmful to users.

  • Factual, and from reputable resources, such as:

    • a 501c3 organization or municipal, state, or federal agency that provides social, educational, or health and human services; or

    • a public benefit corporation and/or a health and human services organization that is not eligible for 501c3 status but meets all state licensing requirements, such as hospitals, health clinics, chemical dependency treatment programs that offer services at no cost, or community counseling agencies that offer services at no cost.

  • Not a duplicate of another resource.
