History & mission of the Institute

The Argyle Institute was established in 1982 by a group of professionals dedicated to the psychological well being of the community, with the twofold purpose of offering the highest level of services in psychotherapy, and providing advanced training in psychological health to professionals in the field.

The founders were inspired by the principles of the Mental Hygiene Institute, which had been serving the population since 1919, providing services directly to people in need, working cooperatively with other agencies, offering teaching seminars to therapists, providing family life education and community services, and staffing a marriage counseling centre.

Today, the core mission of the Argyle is to continue to offer excellence in psychotherapy & training at affordable rates.
