Our Approach to Care

Our team-oriented professionals are committed to high quality mental health services that improve health outcomes.

We have also established partnerships with regional and provincial networks of community services that ensure patients receive the very best care within the hospital and in the community.

We take a holistic approach to care that serves a patient's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs. Mental health professionals are available to see patients receiving care in other parts of the hospital, who also have a mental health problem or are experiencing a severe emotional reaction because of their medical condition.

Family participation in their loved one's care is strongly encouraged during a patient's stay. Whenever possible, families become partners in the care and treatment of their loved one and we integrate them into decision making in a way that respects consent and privacy.
