Adult Psychiatry

How it works

Psychiatry assessments are provided on a consultation basis and are often limited to 1 or 2 sessions. To initiate a Psychiatry assessment, your Family Physician may refer you if they feel it is necessary. Your doctor will then use the recommendations identified in the Psychiatry assessment as a treatment guide and will monitor your needs as necessary.

Psychiatry assessment services are available for those individuals who are experiencing significant concerns with their mental health. A Psychiatrist can assist by clarifying symptoms and diagnoses, as well as making treatment recommendations. The Psychiatrist will consult and collaborate with you, your family (should you desire this) and your Family Physician/Nurse Practitioner to develop an individual treatment guide for you.
