Community Mental Health Services
Overview of Services and Program Delivery
The Mary McGill Community Mental Health Program (MMCMHP) opened in 1980 after a psychiatric nurse recognized the need for dedicated mental health services within the community. This nurse was Mary McGill, who was dedicated to ensuring that local community members in south Simcoe had mental health services close to home. She advocated for the program for two years before getting the green light to open the Community Mental Health Centre at Stevenson Memorial Hospital and became the program's coordinator. Sadly, Mary was diagnosed with breast cancer and in 1987, lost her life to the disease. The Centre was then renamed the Mary McGill Community Mental Health Centre in honour of its founder.
The MMCMHP provides individual and group services offered using a variety of modalities including cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) and mindfulness meditation approaches. The main focus of counselling is to identify goals for change that will improve coping abilities and increase skills training to achieve these goals.
The MMCMHP is a separately funded program of the Ministry of Health; working collaboratively with Stevenson Memorial Hospital to provide community-based mental health and psychiatric services, with a focus on providing timely and accessible services for the community.
Service Access: Physician referral for psychiatry; Self-referral for same/next day crisis, counselling and group.
