We are recruiting for a PSYCHIATRIST (FACTT)
This is a full-time role (35 hours per week) based in Cambridge and Kitchener, ON.
The Psychiatrist will deliver direct and indirect psychiatric services to CMHA WW FACTT clients.
Flexible Assertive Community Treatment (FACT) is a recovery-oriented, evidence-based best practice. A FACT Team is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of clinicians monitoring clients with severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) in a specific catchment area – that is, both those for whom traditional assertive community treatment (ACT) is indicated and a larger majority of clients on the team who need less intensive treatment and support. To combine care for these two groups, the FACT Team employs a flexible switching system where the intensity of services can be ramped up or ramped down as needed depending on individual client need. This combination of flexibility and continuity provides better opportunities for recovery and rehabilitation and ties in well with the natural course of SPMI with its recurring episodes and relapses.
Working in a team based model, the Psychiatrist will treat complex individuals who have serious mental health and addictions issues, requiring long term support and treatment. The Psychiatrist is required to work collaboratively in a team-based care model, including with community partners and primary care.
The incumbent requires:
The Waterloo-Wellington Region consists of 4 cities and surrounding areas: Cambridge, Guelph-Wellington, Kitchener and Waterloo, each with numerous urban amenities but with small town charm and atmosphere. Just a short drive from the cities are numerous small towns set within inviting farmland, forests and rivers of the region. Pearson International Airport is just an hour away, and the sites of Toronto are easily accessible for an evening or day trip. Waterloo-Wellington is a highly sought area to raise a family, offering modest housing prices with an abundance of lifestyle options, and safe, nurturing, family focused communities to live and grow. Three highly regarded universities and a community college contribute to a spirit of academic innovation and leadership, supported by excellent public, separate and private primary and secondary schools.
