Centre for Mental Health
Welcome to Baycrest’s Centre for Mental Health.
The Centre for Mental Health is a multi-component treatment program for people dealing with late-life mental health problems. We understand the complexity of aging. While research and education are integrated into all that we do, our focus and commitment is to provide excellent clinical care for all of our clients.
We use psychosocial approaches such as exercise and behavioural activation, as well as innovative drug therapies and psychotherapies both for the prevention and treatment of severe mood and anxiety disorders.
We provide psychiatric assessment and treatment for seniors within the community who are experiencing health problems such as depression, anxiety and changes in memory, behaviour or personality. We also offer programs to address caregiver stress.
Our programs and services include:
- Geriatric Psychiatry Community Services
- Inpatient Psychiatry Program
- Long-Term Care Behavioural Support Outreach Team
- Mood and Related Disorders Clinic
- Psychiatric Day Hospital for Depression
Learn more about seniors’ mental health on our new educational website for clients and families.
