​​​About Psychology at Princess Margaret

Psychologists are experts in assessing, diagnosing and treating mental health conditions. This includes problems with thinking and memory (neurocognitive disorders), emotional disturbances and behavioural disorders. We can help you and your family improve and maintain the best possible quality of life and well-being.

Our work includes:

  • Helping with medical and surgical treatment planning
  • Assessing learning abilities
  • Teaching you tools that can help you overcome debilitating challenges
  • Offering disease prevention and healthy lifestyle behaviour-change programs

A sub-specialty within our clinical psychology team is clinical neuropsychology. Neuropsychologists assess the impact of cancer and its treatment on cognitive function (the ability to think). We teach patients and families about the short-term and long-term effects of brain injury on daily activities. We can help you learn new skills to deal with the loss of cognitive function.

How to Get Referred

You can ask any member of your health care team for a referral to a psychologist.
