Our Mental Health Program offers specialized care based on an inter-disciplinary approach that centres on the patient’s objectives. To more effectively meet the needs of the public, the Program operates in three areas: in-patient services, out-patient services and community services.


Mental health is precious. In Canada, one in five people will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime. We may all need help someday. At Montfort, as in many hospitals, a team is in place to help you if you needed support and care during difficult times. We helped Sofiane, who has been a patient of the Mental Health Program at Montfort. She tells us her story.
