What is Psychiatry ?
Psychiatry treatment focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental, emotional and behavioural disorders. Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in both the mental and physical aspect of psychological disorders.
Our team of Psychiatrists offer ongoing medication management and refills. You can also access in-house therapy sessions with our registered therapists, if needed.

These long titles can be confusing and intimidating! Here’s a breakdown of what each kind of professional offers:
- Psychotherapists and Social Workers offer talk therapy. Their education and experience are comparable, and they are often covered under the same line item in insurance policies.
- Psychologists often have a Doctorate of Clinical Psychology and are able to perform assessments and give medical diagnoses. They also offer talk therapy.
- Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in the prescription of medications for mental health concerns.
Our team of leading experts work together to make sure their patients are receiving the best care we can offer.
Our psychiatrists only offer OHIP covered care at this time. This means that you must have a valid OHIP card and requires a referral be completed by your family doctor or GP. This includes patients who are enrolled or interested in enrolling in our structured Programs.
Psychiatry appointments are covered by OHIP, meaning your family doctor must send us a referral before we can book you. Kindly keep in mind that across the province there are wait times for psychiatry of up to six months. We do our best to have approved patients seen as promptly as possible.
Submit a form and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
Call or text us for immediate support. We are open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm EST
