About Mental Health

Our social workers provide counselling for personal and family difficulties on referral from our physicians.

In addition, the social workers maintain information on community agencies and social programs, which may benefit you and your family.

Arrangements have also been made for a psychiatrist to visit the medical centre on a regular basis to improve accessibility for those patients requiring such services.
King West Medical is a part of the Family Health Team.  This means that we are able to offer our patients a wide variety of services that most other medical practices aren't able to offer.
