Adult Community Services

Appointments on an outpatient basis can be obtained by self-referral, through family doctors, and the courts.

Often arrangements can be made for services to be provided at one of our community clinics to reduce travelling time for those who live outside Yorkton. Individual, couple, family and group counseling services, as well as psychological testing services, are provided.

Child and Youth Services

Specialized services are provided for those under 18 years of age and their families.

The services provided include individual and family counseling, assessment, consultation, community development, public education, court-ordered assessment and treatment, and youth suicide intervention.

These services are available at a number of community clinics in addition to the Yorkton Mental Health Centre. Parents or others directly involved with a child or youth can refer children for counseling services by contacting the Child and Youth intake worker at the Yorkton Mental Health Centre.

Rehabilitation Services

An Activity Therapy Program is provided for both inpatients and outpatients through the operation of a craft woodwork shop. A day program is held at the Yorkton Mental Health Centre Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The program is designed for those who require ongoing support and life skills training which will enable them to live more independently and successfully in their community.

Community Rehabilitation Nurses are available to provide follow-up and an Approved Home Program is available for individuals who are not able to live independently. Educational and support groups for families and others are conducted by Rehabilitation Program staff. Referrals can be made by contacting Rehabilitation Services staff.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid courses are offered throughout the year, providing education and tools to assist those developing a mental health problem or experiencing a mental health crisis.
