Adult Psychiatric Clinic

About the Psychiatric Clinics at MDABC

The Mood Disorders Association of BC (MDABC), houses a psychiatric clinic where you can receive a prompt (typically less than six weeks) psychiatric assessment.

The Clinic also offers a variety of follow-up treatment programs if this is of interest to you.  Current treatment programs include:

i) medication treatment and monitoring in our group medical visits;

ii) both group and individual psychological (psychotherapy) treatment through our Wellness Centre;

iii) Food and Mood treatment program (using dietary changes to treat depression);  

iv) in conjunction with the Board of Vancouver Park and Recreation, our Jumpstep program (exercise as a treatment for chronic depression).

v) Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS): a safe and non-invasive alternative treatment for depression.

More information about all of these programs is present on this website, as are brief bios of all of our medical staff.
