What is clinic care?

It provides comprehensive mental health services to both children and adults who are suffering from various mental health disorders and related issues. Clinic care’s multi-disciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologist, social workers and mental health nurses aims to provide quality psychiatric and psychological treatment to clients and their family.

What are clinic care services?

The services offered are focused towards outpatient clients (clients that receive treatment without being admitted) and are based on a comprehensive physical, psychological, mental, cognitive, family and environmental assessment of a patient/client.

These services include:

  • comprehensive psychiatric diagnostic evaluation and treatment
  • medication management
  • psychological counseling and therapy (Individuals, children, family)
  • psychological testing

How is care organized?

There is a process to be followed in order to offer quality care and to meet the needs of the clients.  This process includes:

1.        Nurse intake: the client will be presented with a series of questions by a mental health nurse in order to gather crucial background information.

2.        Psychiatric intake: the client will be assessed by the psychiatrist to determine the presence or absence of a mental illness and the appropriate treatment plan for the client and/or further services the client might be in need of, i.e. psychological, day care, ambulant, etc.

3.        Treatment: once it is established what course of action to take, treatment will then begin along with psycho-education and support.

How is aftercare delivered?

This service is provided by the case managers and psychiatrist and is dependent upon each client’s individual case and circumstances.
