visitors welcome!

All restrictions relative to the number of visitors for each patients are lifted, however we will make clinical judgment regarding visit length and size of visitor groups.

As part of our normal protocol, visitors must first check in at the reception desk in the Stedman Building lobby. Visitors will be given new masks and are required to complete a COVID-19 screening prior to visiting patients. Visitor lockers in the Stedman lobby are ready for use and the receptionist will give visitors a key to store personal property. Please remember that we limit items brought onto the treatment units.

Thank you for helping us keep our patients and staff safe and well.


We are using a virtual platform to run four therapeutic groups a day. We are also providing individual check-ins, family meetings and psychopharmacology all by internet or phone.
