The Benefits of Accessing our Collaborative Psychiatric Care

  • Empowers individuals

    Psychiatry helps empowers individuals to make major changes in their life, and to pinpoint underlying issues related to their mental or behavioral health patterns.

  • Improving Your Quality of Life

    Accessible psychiatric support for children and adults provides a timely diagnosis, medication recommendations or monitoring, and psychotherapy recommendations. Helping you initiate your journey to recovery faster.

  • Reduced Wait Times

    Most clients wait for 6-18 months for a psychiatric consult. Because we are collaborative partners, and through our Virtual Clinic your wait is significantly reduced to 6 to 8 weeks, with the added convenience meeting via your therapist’s office or from your home.

Is Psychiatrist Consultation Covered By OHIP?

The consultations take place with both the therapist and the psychiatrist. The doctor’s time is covered by OHIP. However since the therapist’s time is not covered by OHIP regular fees will apply. Initial assessments are 90 minutes long, follow ups are 20 minutes long.

How Often Would I See A Psychiatrist?

The first consultation is 90 minutes long, after that the doctor will make recommendations for follow ups depending on your situation. Follow ups are 20 minutes long so they can take place during a regular psychotherapy session.

Why should you put your mental health first?

Mental health is important for all ages, for children and adolescents, to adults and seniors. If how we think, feel, and act is affected, our ability to cope with life may be compromised causing anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorders that may grow with time. Getting early help, creates better practices of how we handle stress, relate to others, and make sound life choices.

The Insight Clinic provides the most experienced Psychiatrists in Ontario with a commitment to keep you aligned and on the path of well-being.
