Referrals are accepted directly from WRHA Program service teams and primary care or specialist physicians in the community.
The Clinical Health Psychology Program supports the WRHA's health care model in which the primary care clinician (often the family physician) is the coordinator of needed health care services. Therefore, it is preferred that referrals be initiated by a family physician (or copied to the family physician for their information).
Referrals from physicians and service teams may be directed to a specific psychology service or to a specific specialist psychologist. More information regarding site-specific services and contact instructions is available on this website. These sections also include addresses and fax instructions regarding referrals. Psychology services can be accessed through:
|Deer Lodge Centre
|Health Sciences Centre
|Seven Oaks General Hospital
|St Boniface Hospital
|Victoria General Hospital
