Description

In Ontario, the psychiatric hospitals have a lengthy history of providing specialized inpatient treatment for individuals with developmental disabilities and mental health needs. In the last decade these programs have continued to operate and thrive by expanding to outpatient services. This presentation discusses their role within the continuum of service by providing the policy context and reviewing the key elements and approaches adopted to effectively support patient needs.
