Your Care Team

Registered clients are provided a psychiatrist and another healthcare provider, referred to as the “Most Responsible Clinician” or “MRC”.  The “MRC” is the person you see the most and who you contact when you need support. The “MRC” could be a nurse, social worker, vocational counselor, recreational therapist or occupational therapist.

The MRC will:

  • Talk with you about your needs
  • Talk with you about your goals
  • Help you to get the right service, from the right people, at the right time
  • Support you through difficult times

If you choose, the "MRC" can coach you to set goals and work on self-management, reducing and managing the impact of illness on your daily life.


We are open Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. (closed on statutory holiday)
