Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Services in Psychiatry
Occupational Therapy, often abbreviated as “OT”, is a healthcare profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the occupations which give meaning and purpose to their lives. ( Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists)
The JGH occupational therapy services in psychiatry consist of 13 part-time occupational therapists who are an integral part of treatment teams in child, adult and geriatric psychiatry. Referrals are made in an interdisciplinary context in both in and out-patient services.
