Our Centre for Mental Health Research and Treatment (CMHRT) does not have a full-time counselling staff, psychiatrist or emergency services, and treatment here is conducted under supervision. As such, our centre cannot provide services when there is a risk of frequent or severe crisis or involvement with the law. We do not provide services for the following:

  • Assessments for legal issues (e.g., capacity/child custody and access, intellectual fitness)
  • Families in the midst of custody deliberations
  • Treatment for alcohol and substance abuse/dependence, or treatment for other problems (e.g., anxiety) if the person is currently dependent on alcohol or street drugs
  • Psychotic disorders
  • Acute eating disorders
  • Problems that are associated with a high risk of legal involvement (e.g., violence, criminal behaviour)
  • Problems that are associated with frequent and/or severe crises (e.g., actively suicidal and unwilling to contract to not act on thoughts, chronic self-harming behaviour).
