Psychiatry Referral Service Discontinued

The AMO established the Psychiatry Referral Service in 2002 because family physicians who provide the bulk of primary mental health care to the citizens of Ottawa found it very difficult to access psychiatrists.

Due to the number of community-based psychiatrists steadily declining over the past several years, the AMO is no longer able to provide this service to primary care physicians in Ottawa.

We thank all those who supported and participated in the Psychiatry Referral Service.
