Markham Stouffville Hospital is a leading mental health treatment centre in York Region, and specializes in community integrated mental health. With psychiatrists who have cross-appointments with CAMH, Queen’s University, McMaster University and the University of Toronto, MSH is committed to providing a comprehensive continuum of care, and believes that breaking down the barriers of stigma will help ease the suffering.
“At MSH, mental health treatment is front and centre. In our quest to protect against stigma, we aim to offer a counter narrative to stigma, through educational events and community-based initiatives and care,” says Dr. Rustom Sethna, Chief of Psychiatry at MSH. “While mental illness can significantly impact one’s ability to succeed in life, early intervention opens up many opportunities for wellness and a better future. In the treatment of cancer and other serious illnesses, early intervention is not just accepted, it’s the norm. We must continue to ensure that everyone who is facing challenges with their mental health can get the care and support they need, when they need it.”
Every woman at MSH is supported on her path to mental health wellness through its provision of emergency and crisis support, and adult inpatient services, as well as its full-service Adult Outpatient Clinic including the BRIDGE Day Treatment Program. And its Child and Adolescent Services team cares for young girls under the age of 19. Offering individual, group and family therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, interpersonal therapy, a schizophrenia medication and wellness clinic, as well as adolescent depression group sessions, the Worry Busters anxiety group for children and the ATLAS Adolescent Day Hospital Program, Markham Stouffville Hospital is addressing the mental health crisis in York Region through its dedication to delivering evidence-based therapy and innovative services.
