Mental Health Care at St. Joseph’s Health Centre

Adults, youth and children suffering with mental illness are amongst our most vulnerable patients. For those in crisis, there are concerns around safety such as self-harm or suicide.  And for youth that come to St. Joe’s, it is often their first time seeking help.  That first impression starts in our Mental Health Emergency Services Unit so it’s important to get this first impression right.

Our current space doesn’t separate children and youth from adults, privacy is lacking and the unit doesn’t feel like a healing environment.

St. Joe’s updating our Mental Health Emergency Services Unit so that patients in crisis and their families have access to private, healing spaces that support timely assessment and treatment.
