We provide inpatient service to clients with complex mental illness that has stabilized to the degree that acute treatment is no longer required, but for whom ongoing intensive psychiatric, behavioural and psychosocial rehabilitation is needed.
Individuals in this program may later integrate into secondary residential services. Clients can expect to receive the support required to work toward their wellness goals. These are developed individually in collaboration with their care team. The length of stay ranges from six to 24 months, depending on individual needs.
There is pay parking available at our two visitor lots located on the VGH campus:
Multi-level parkade at the corner of West 12th Avenue and Laurel Street, across from the main entrance of the Jim Pattison Pavilion.
The Gordon and Leslie Diamond Health Care Centre parking lot is located off of Laurel Street between West 12th and West 13th Avenue.
There is a wheelchair-accessible overpass from the VGH parkade at Level 4 and a crosswalk at Level 2.
