 What We Do

​The Urgent Care Clinic is staffed by mental health clinicians and psychiatrists who specialize in crisis management. Patients suitable for referral to the clinic are those who are not in need of immediate hospitalization or emergency department assessment, but are unable to wait weeks for an outpatient psychiatric assessment. Using a biopsychosocial approach, our team makes an assessment and offers recommendations – these may include referral to a community resource for ongoing care or short-term follow-up within the clinic. We also provide a "bridging" function for people whose long-term follow-up is either interrupted or has not yet been arranged.

Patients receiving treatment within the clinic will be placed into one of two streams, either consulting with a crisis clinician for a brief, intensive therapy of a maximum of 3 appointments or with a psychiatrist for a maximum of 10 appointments. Treatment is intended to bring patients to a position of stability and not be ongoing.

How to Prepare

Your first appointment can take 2 hours or more. Any subsequent appointments that may be booked following your initial assessment will be approximately 1 hour.
