Program Description

The Royal Ottawa Health Care Group (ROHGC) offers intensive and specialized mental health services to youth 15 to 18 years of age with early onset major psychiatric disorders and/or complex and treatment resistant psychiatric illnesses. There is flexibility in the age criteria of the youth that may be served within our program in keeping with their best clinical interests. Expert care is delivered within an interdisciplinary team approach that includes psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, an occupational therapist, nurses, and a recreation therapist. Outpatient services, offers assessment, consultative and treatment services to youth who can function in the community with less intensive clinical support. Services are delivered in collaboration with community mental health providers. Outreach services provide the essential link to consultative and collaborative partnerships for youth suffering from major psychiatric disorders that are living in the Renfrew, Prescott-Russell, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry counties. The interdisciplinary team works in collaboration with the community in which the youth lives to ensure that specialized psychiatric services are available to them. Ongoing follow-up of youth discharged from Royal Ottawa Health Care Group inpatient programs and youth programs is available through Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN). Model of service is medical, psychosocial, and interdisciplinary team.
