Reminder about the new referral form for St. Michael's Hospital Mental Health and Addiction Service
April 15, 2019
The St. Michael's Mental Health and Addiction Service (MHAS) continues to accept patient referrals in need of psychiatric consultation. Recently, some of you may have received a return fax from them (please see example) explaining that they are currently unable to provide a specific appointment time to your patient. MHAS is keeping these referrals and as soon as they are able, they will schedule an appointment for your patient. These appointments will be scheduled in July 2019 at the earliest.
Please submit your referrals to St. Michael's using the new MHAS referral form. MHAS will only process referrals sent on the new referral form.
A reminder that the MHAS catchment area is: East of Yonge St. to Victoria Park Ave.; South of Bloor St. to Lake Ontario.
The St. Michael's Rapid Access Addiction Clinic is a drop-in clinic for clients with active substance use disorders operating on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. No referrals necessary. Patients in the community can also receive help with withdrawal management at any time from Central Access 1-866-366-9513, or treatment matching from Coordinated Access at 1-855-505-5045.
If you have any questions, please contact Mental Health and Addictions Service Central Intake at 416-864-5120 ext. 2
