Child & Adolescent Mental Health Urgent Care Clinic: For Healthcare Providers

A child & adolescent urgent psychiatric consultation is indicated when there is urgent need for psychiatric consultation due to serious mental health concerns that do not require immediate hospital admission. This includes:

  • significant safety concerns (suicide/violence)
  • severe and disabling mood, psychotic or anxiety symptoms
  • urgent medication consultation
  • serious functional impairment requiring urgent intervention

Please complete a child and adolescent mental health referral form and fax to 416-469-6179.

Please include the HEADS-ED screening tool

Any referrals that do not meet the criteria for an urgent psychiatric consultation will be redirected for a routine psychiatric consultation or to rapid access community resources. Please contact the urgent care worker at 416-469-6580 ext. 2297 for further details or questions.
