Referrals to NWMH services

A referral to NorthWestern Mental Health's services can be made by a health professional or by an individual.

If you wish to be to be seen by or receive treatment at NorthWestern Mental Health, it is preferable that you are referred to the service by a health professional. Your local doctor, psychiatrist or psychologist can refer you and may be able to provide you with treatment for your illness. You can also contact NWMH yourself by calling the appropriate phone number on the Contact Us page.

If you have come to the Emergency Department of the hospital for urgent treatment, the staff there can refer you to NorthWestern Mental Health's services.

If you have a question about referrals, please select Contact Us and email your enquiry.
