Referral Process

Ward 11 predominately accepts referrals from other wards within the Mental Health, Addictions and Intellectual Disability Directorate however, in special negotiated circumstances, do accept direct admissions.


Ward 11 cares for people who require a further period of stabilisation or rehabilitation beyond their stay in an acute ward. From there, we assist people to transition back to the community with supports in place specific to that person's needs.
