Provides short term treatment for persons experiencing a range of mental health concerns.
Provides individual, couples, group or family therapy to adults:
- who are suicidal or at risk for suicide
- who have an Axis I diagnosis
- who are experiencing a significant impairment in functioning meaning that they are not able to carry out daily activities of living
Clients initially speak with an intake therapist who determines eligibility, risk and urgency. They connect the client with the most appropriate mental health program or refer clients to an appropriate community agency.
The assigned therapist establishes treatment goals with the client based on symptoms and the clients identified goals.
Therapists work collaboratively with family physicians and may refer clients to a psychiatrist, if necessary.
