Inpatient Mental Health - Mississauga
Trillium's forty-two bed Inpatient Mental Health Unit provides
assessment, diagnosis, treatment and aftercare planning for
adults experiencing an acute mental health issue. An eight
bed Geriatric Mental Health Unit, provides the same services
to patients who are over the age of sixty-five.
Both units strive to help patients return to the community as soon as possible, and ensure the supports are in place to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Referral: Patients are admitted to the Inpatient Mental Health Unit or Geriatric Mental Health Unit based on the assessment recommendation of a Trillium Health Centre-affiliated psychiatrist.
Programs: The unit is staffed by a multidisciplinary team that includes psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, psychologists and pharmacists. In collaboration with each patient, the treatment team develops an individual treatment plan which reflects each individuals unique treatment needs. Programs included in the treatment plan may include individual sessions with the nurses and psychiatrists and group programs/activities.
