There has been a significant increase in demand for COVID-19 testing at our Assessment Centre. This may result in longer than usual wait times and line-ups.

Consultation Assessment Time-Limited Therapy Clinic (CATT)
Michael Garron Hospital's (MGH) consultation assessment time-limited therapy clinic (CATT) provides psychiatric consultations to family physicians and other community care providers in the MGH catchment area. We provide clinical services requested by physician-specialists for their patients with co-morbid psychiatric and physical illness.
We collaborate with other psychiatric services within and outside of MGH. This makes it possible for CATT patients to engage in multiple treatment modalities, such as vocational and art groups in addition to individual psychiatric care and psychotherapy.
CATT consists of a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists and hospital staff and is one of several independent clinics of the outpatient adult mental health service at MGH. There are two permanent and one part-time psychiatrists. The therapists are masters level clinicians in psychology and social work specializing in time-limited, psychotherapy and cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT).
CATT provides individual time-limited counseling and psychotherapy in 6 to 12 sessions.
Physician referral is required
