Tertiary Psychiatric Services are specialized mental health services designed for people with severe mental illness that have not responded to treatment. These individuals have experienced ongoing difficulty with managing their illness and living in the community.

Admission to these programs are by referral only.
 

 

As a step towards reconciliation, Interior Health acknowledges the land that we live, work, and play on as the traditional territories of the Dakelh Dene, Ktunaxa, Nlaka’pamux, Secwepemc, St’at’imc, Syilx and Tsilhqot’in peoples. It is with humility that we continue to strengthen our relationships with the First Nation, Métis, and Inuit peoples of the interior.
