Programs & Services


Transitions Program

Psychiatric consultation is provided to family physicians who have patients awaiting placement in a supported living / long term facility.

The Transitions Program works within a shared care model whereby patients are managed by the local family physicians with psychiatric consultation, as required. It serves patients with mental health diagnoses who have been assessed and approved by Transitions Services and are awaiting placement in a supported living / long term facility. The unit utilizes a patient tracking security system which can accommodate certain types of patients who have a tendency to wander or elope. Due to environmental and staffing constraints however, the unit cannot accommodate patients who have unprovoked or unanticipated aggressive behavior towards self or others.
