Same Day Mental Health Care in Beaufort Delta

Beaufort Delta residents will no longer have to seek out Yellowknife or even farther for reliable mental health services

Beaufort Delta residents will now have access to same day mental health services.The new model began premiering in April, before which point people would have to wait over two weeks for an appointment.

The old model had urgent service, but it had to be a certain severity, which has now been relaxed.

The new model also includes giving clients the opportunity to make a choice regarding the type of services they want, as well as more education on their options.

Representatives say the changes have resulted in more appointment bookings, and less missed appointments.

The model changes have also impacted the wellness programs, and workers have said seeing the impact of the changes has been very-rewarding.
