Our Philosophy of Care

Multidisciplinary approach
It is important to us to have options for different approaches to care, with clinicians from various different disciplines – we know that care is not one-size-fits-all!
Trauma-informed
Programs have been built with, and staff have been trained with, the following principles in mind:
Safety
Trust
Choice
Collaboration
Empowerment
Respect for Diversity
Recovery-focused
Care and treatment is focused on helping patients feel empowered, with tools, skills, and support to recover towards meaningful living.
Patient-centred
Patients’ ability to advocate for their care needs, their treatment goals, and to have their voices heard is central to our staff’s focus.
