Health psychology

Our Health psychology service is one of several ambulatory care clinics.

Its five psychologists specialize in clinical psychology and health psychology for various populations. These professionals actively participate in the clinical training and supervision of clerks, interns and residents enrolled in clinical psychology doctoral programs. As professors and researchers in psychology and/or medicine, they are affiliated with the University of Ottawa and/or the Université du Québec en Outaouais. Some also perform research through the Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort. 

Our psychologists offer services to young people and adults (16 years of age or more). They also work with children, teens and their families.

Our psychological services primarily consist of assessment, consultation and short-term treatment for youths and adults. These patients are living with a physical and/or chronic illness like cancer, heart problems, diabetes, chronic pain, inflammatory bowel diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder or chronic insomnia. They may also present mental health problems commonly seen in a primary care context. Our interventions are adapted to the needs of individuals, couples and groups.

We accept requests for consultations from ambulatory care clinics, and family physicians with privileges at Montfort. These requests must be sent directly to the Health psychology service by internal mail to room 1D 114, or by fax to 613‑748‑4995.   

Services for Children and Teens (age 4 to 16 years) and their Families

Sébastien Normand, PhD, C. Psych.

As a complement to the Pediatric clinic, we offer psychological services (assessment, consultation and short-term treatment) to children, teens and their families. These young patients struggle with attention deficits, hyperactivity, learning disorders, behavioural problems or other mental health problems commonly seen in a pediatric context (anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, etc.). Our interventions are adapted to individuals, families or groups.

Pediatricians with the Pediatric clinic can submit their consultation requests by internal mail to room 1D 139, or by fax to 613‑907‑8027.  

Please note that a medical referral is mandatory.
