What To Expect from your outpatient visit

Our outpatient clinics are located on Brock 5 at Hotel Dieu. Please check in with our secretaries in room 564 before your appointment.

At your first appointment, you and your child will meet with a psychiatrist, who will complete an initial assessment. Based on this assessment, your child's psychiatrist will then make recommendations for services and treatment that are appropriate for your child, if necessary. Your child may be referred to another professional on the multidisciplinary teams (psychology, social work, behaviour therapy, occupational therapy) for further assessment, individual treatment, and/or group treatment.

Parental involvement is a vital and necessary part of our services. Parent education and training is provided through individual treatment and groups.

Please expect a wait time to access a psychiatrist, along with additional wait time to access multidisciplinary services.
