Referrals are accepted directly from WRHA Program service teams and primary care or specialist physicians in the community.
The Clinical Health Psychology Program supports the WRHA’s health care model in which the primary care clinician (often the family physician) is the coordinator of needed health-care services. Therefore, it is preferred that referrals be initiated by a family physician (or copied to the family physician for their information).
Referrals from physicians and service teams may be directed to a specific psychology service or to a specific specialist psychologist. More information regarding site-specific services and contact instructions is available on this website. These sections also include addresses and fax instructions regarding referrals. Psychology services can be accessed through:
Health Sciences Centre
St Boniface Hospital
Victoria General Hospital
If you are unsure to whom you should direct a referral, it may be faxed or mailed to the address below and it will the be re-directed to the appropriate service:
