Mental health conditions touch patients across Hamilton Health Sciences. To meet the diverse needs of patients and families an expert team of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and nurses stand ready to provide that care. Whether it is in the Child & Youth Mental Health Program at McMaster Children’s Hospital (the largest pediatric program in Canada) or through a special initiative at Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre for patients and families dealing with Cancer. Hamilton Health Sciences is home to a complete range of local and highly specialized regional programs such as burn, trauma and rehabilitation. There are patient populations across the full spectrum of programs that need care for mental health or addictions. Additional mental health support is available for patients in palliative care or with dementia; victims of sexual assault; women facing issues associated with a high-risk pregnancy; or those struggling with addictions. While the pandemic has heightened awareness of mental health and addictions, Hamilton Health Sciences provides mental health treatment for adult and pediatric patients across its family of highly specialized hospitals on an ongoing basis.
