We have a large inpatient unit (58 adult beds) and service a high volume of diverse outpatient referrals, ranging across ages, and a variety of diagnoses including mood and anxiety disorders, severe and persistent mental illness, addictions, and others. Within the outpatient program, patients are provided with consultations or episodes of care, depending on need and diagnosis. Patients with mood and anxiety disorders our seen through our Stepped Care program. We are very fortunate to have a large and highly skilled allied health team. As such, outpatients can access a variety of programming and allied health supports, including psychoeducation, CBT groups, day programs, addictions supports, and more. Our department currently includes a collegial group of about 30 psychiatrists.
