If you book your appointment in-person you will be asked to complete a mental health screener. This may result in a brief "safety check" appointment with the mental health nurse to ensure your safety.

When you arrive for your scheduled appointment at the Health Services clinic (U216), new patients will be asked to complete some paperwork and a mental health screener (if not previously completed). Please bring your provincial health care card.

During your appointment, the mental health nurse will ask questions to assess your needs while you share your concerns. The nurse will help you identify resources and together you will decide on the next steps. The appointment may take up to one hour.

MRU Health Services is committed to protecting your personal health information according to the Health Information Act and other applicable provincial and federal legislation. Your personal health information will not be used or disclosed with anyone outside of MRU Health Services, except with your written consent or as permitted by law.

Please cancel at least 24 hours prior to your appointment time if you are unable to attend. You can leave a message on the answering machine after hours.
