The launch of Wayfound, formerly known as WGM Psychology, represents the culmination of a decade’s worth of growth and development in the mental health industry. WGM was founded in 1999 by my father, a clinical psychologist who spent his career working in community mental health prior to establishing WGM. In fact, “WGM” are his initials: William Gordon McElheran.
I was proud to join my father at WGM, beginning in 2007, after I became a clinical psychologist myself. My particular interest has always been on the intersection of issues of social justice and mental health, and I gathered particular experience working with first responders, a population of people who have historically been significantly marginalized relative to mental health care.
The WGM clinics and brand have grown in the past number of years, and we are now seen as recognized experts in the field of first responder and general mental health. We have clinics across Canada and have developed a suite of proprietary products and interventions based on the experience we have gathered and research we have completed with our clients.
