Community Consultation Services - Dual Diagnosis

A specialized psychiatry consultation service for individuals with an intellectual/developmental disability who are experiencing mental health concerns and/or may also have adaptive, challenging and aggressive behaviours. The main purpose of our service is to provide a comprehensive psychiatric consultation focusing on diagnostic clarification and medication review with recommendations to the primary care provider. The team partners with families and community partners using a collaborative approach to ensure treatment recommendations are implemented and effective.

Who is Eligible?
Individuals who are 16 and older who have a diagnosis of Intellectual Disability and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder with significant adaptive/behavioral challenges including self-injurious behavior and/or aggression.

How to access the program?
Primary care providers complete the Waypoint Referral Form and submit referrals to the Central Intake department.   

What happens after a referral is submitted?
Once the Central Intake team approves the referral, a clinician will contact the client to schedule their initial assessment.  Following their initial assessment, clients will be provided with an appointment for a consultation with a psychiatrist.  Follow up will occur with the clinician in collaboration with the psychiatrist to ensure treatment recommendations are implemented and effective.
