Specialized Mental Health - Mood & Anxiety Treatment Program

 

If you are experiencing a mental health emergency, please contact Community Crisis Services at (519) 973-4435 or go to your nearest Emergency Department.

 

This program serves individuals 16 – 65 years of age living in Windsor and Essex County as a specialized outpatient, centre-based mental health treatment program providing services to individuals living with severe, complex or treatment resistant mood and/or anxiety disorders. Clients are assessed based on provisional diagnosis, duration of illness, disability caused by illness and risk. Following the psychosocial assessment, psychotherapy, individual and/or group, and psychiatric services are provided.

 

 A bio-psychosocial approach is used to understand and treat the mood and anxiety disorders. The goal is to reduce symptoms of the mood and/or anxiety disorder, improve functionality and quality of life, and prevent psychiatric hospitalization and/or re-admission.

 The program provides a quality, evidence-based, time limited, cognitive-behavioural treatment approach. Service linkages are primarily with inpatient and outpatient mental health services, the crisis program at HDGH, Community Counselling Alliance and family physicians.

 

Access to the program requires a physician referral. If the client is without a family physician, the team will assist to connect them to a primary care provider.

 

Referrals

  Referrals to the Mood and Anxiety Treatement Program can be made by a physician.

Families’ and Friends’ Role in Promoting Safety

Family members and friends play an important role in patient safety.  Encouraging
attendance of appointments, taking medications and asking to be involved in
understanding and facilitating treatment plans is recommended among family
members and friends.  If family members and friends have serious concerns
about a loved one’s safety and well-being please utilize emergency (911) or
crisis hotline (519-973-4435) services or locations (nearest emergency room or
crisis centre) as needed.  You are always allowed to provide us with
information however we may not be able to relay information/feedback to you
directly.  For any important messages the hospital contact information is
provided on this website under the Contacts link.  
Thank you for your role in promoting safety.
