The Social Worker offers counselling and treatment for mental health issues. This includes: individual counselling/treatment; self-management of symptoms; a treatment plan and goals in partnership with patients.
Our goal is to provide timely access to services that will help improve the mental health status of patients.
The team will also help refer and connect patients to community agencies and other service providers in the community who provide mental health, addiction and psychiatric services.
The team also provides psychiatric appointments through Ontario Telemedicine Network, to help avoid long wait times while providing care in the patient's community.
