Mental health facilities refers to the different settings where mental health care is offered, such as inpatients, outpatients and residential treatment.

You may also be interested in the following subheadings:

1. Hospitals

Most hospitals have mental health services which may include Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Social Workers and other professionals. Programs offered typically include:

  • Outpatient programs, where one comes to the hospital for mental health services;
  • Day treatment, or partial hospitalization programs, where a person comes for treatment for longer periods or more frequently, for more intensive therapy than one would receive from simply seeing an outpatient therapist or clinician;
  • Inpatient programs, where a person is admitted to hospital in order to provide a high level of supervision and care until the condition improves enough so that the person can be treated as an outpatient.

3.1 Walk-In Counselling

Looking for an appointment the same day, or within a few days? Walk-in counselling clinics provide counseling services, without a need to book a long time in advance. They can be helpful for many issues such as family conflict, stress, grief, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, separation, divroce or abuse. Most of the time, no appointment is required, though some clinics may require you to call ahead the same day to book appointments for that day.

3.2.4.1 Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP)

DDP is a therapy and parenting approach that uses what we know about attachment and trauma to help children and families with their relationships. When a child has experienced stresses such as trauma, this can lead the child to become disconnected from the important people in the child's life, and experience problems such as depression, anxiety and behaviour problems. DDP offers a powerful way to reconnect children to the people that are important, thus improving their relationships as well as problems with depression, anxiety and behaviours.

3.2.6 Brainspotting (BSP)

Brainspotting (BSP) is relatively newer type of psychological treatment developed to help people with stress, anxiety and trauma. In many people, standard talking therapies are not effective, perhaps because their logical and emotional brains are overwhelmed by the stress and trauma. In brainspotting, the target is the survival (‘subcortical’) brain, with the use of focused mindfulness and specific eye movements. This allows painful, distressing memories to be processed so that they are no longer distressing, allowing people to heal from past traumatic experiences.

 

Unfortunately, there are no results for this heading. Brainspotting (BSP)

3.2.7 Coaching

Coaching is the process whereby a coach teaches and directs another person via encouragement and advice. The coach provides an individual with feedback, insight and guidance on achieving their full potential in their business or personal life. Coaches usually first help by defining goals, and then supports the client in working out a strategy to reach those goals, and helps the client stay on track.

 

Compared to counselling, coaching generally has a narrower focus; focuses on performance rather than underlying root causes; tends to be shorter-term; does not seek to improve underlying psychological problems; focuses on improvement on function in already well-functioning individuals.

 

Coaching is generally more suitable for individuals who are well-functioning to begin with, whereas counselling/therapy would be recommended for individuals who are more distressed.

3.2.15 Family, Marital, and Couple Therapy

A marriage, couple and family therapist specializes in helping concerns and problems in couple or family relationships. Marriage, couple and family therapy can be given by any professional that has sufficient training, which usually tends to be social workers, psychologists or psychiatrists.

 

Unlike traditional therapy where the therapist just meets with the individual, family counselling and therapy is where the therapist meets with the individual and one or more family members. The idea is that no matter what the difficulty is, others in the family are part of the solution and thus need to be involved in the therapy or treatment.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) is a type of therapy that focuses on a person's relationships and connections with other people. Regardless of how a problem such as depression started, the problem is often maintained by ongoing stresses in a person's relationships.

3.2.20 Multisystemic Therapy (MST)

Multisystemic therapy (MST) is an intensive family- and community-based treatment program designed for children/youth who have serious behaviour problems, such as conduct disordered and antisocial behaviours.

 

Unlike many therapies which focus primarily on the child/youth (such as individual therapy), MST is 'multi-systemic' and focuses on various aspects of the person's life (such as home, school, community, and peer relations) to help the behaviour problems.

3.2.23 Play Therapy

Play therapy uses play to communicate with and help children. Play therapy is useful for children because they naturally express themselves for play, and because they may not be able to express themselves verbally (using their words) as would be required for other types of therapy such as "talk therapies." Play therapy can be delivered by any mental health professional that has received sufficient training in it.

 

In Canada, it is preferable (though not always possible) to have a professional who has official training approved by the Canadian Association for Child and Play Therapy.

3.2.24 Psychoeducational Assessment

When an individual has learning problems, it can be very helpful to have a psychoeducational assessment performed by a psychologist. 

 

The usual first step is to speak to the child's school regarding the possibility of seeing a psychologist that works with the schoolboard. This is paid for by the schoolboard, however there are often long waitlists. 

 

Sometimes there are community agencies (such as psychology training programs with a university) that can offer free, or low-cost testing. 

 

The quickest way is to pay privately for a psychologist working in private practice. In Canada, a psychoeducational assessment costs approximately in the $1,000-$2,000 range. 

 

In many cases, a parent's workplace may have a health plan that can pay for at least some of this expense.  

 

If you are having problems finding psychologists in this category, consider just looking directly under psychologists

3.2.25 Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis

Psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis helps the individual develop insight and understanding into their past, which hopefully may then translate into positive changes in the present. Most psychiatrists (and many psychologists) have psychodynamic training. Psychoanalysis is a more involved treatment, classically involving up to a few visits per week, for many years, and is delivered by trained 'psychoanalysts', who tend to be psychiatrists.
