Important Info from the IWK:


As of Wednesday, March 25th, all staff and physicians providing outpatient MHA services in all off-site locations will be working from home, the main health center site or the Nova  Scotia Youth Center. Psychiatrists and MHA clinicians providing non-urgent services will determine if a face to face visit is required and facilitate care at the main health centre. All home and community outreach face to face MHA visits are on hold  and will be delivered virtually. All other emergent/urgent services at the Health Centre will continue with regular services.    


The MHA services moving to expanded virtual options are:

- Specific Care Clinics, Community Mental Health and Addictions (CMHA), Youth Forensics Services (Pleasant St. location), Central Intake Services and Reproductive Mental Health

- Adolescent Intensive Service and Children’s Intensive Service,


The IWK will provide services using virtual methods including Tele-practice and Medeo. Zoom for Healthcare will be set up in the coming days. Once set up, additional virtual video services will be offered in Community Mental Health and Addictions, Specific Care Clinics, Reproductive Mental Health and Youth Forensic Services (Pleasant St. location).  


All Urgent and Emergent services such as the Urgent Care Clinic, Emergency Mental Health and Addictions Services (EMHAS), Secure Care Unit and the Garron Child for Child and Adolescent Mental Health will continue with regular operations. Over the coming days, the IWK will explore expanded virtual care delivery options along with continued face to face services for the Urgent Care Services and Emergency Mental Health and Addictions Services.
