Adult Inpatient Unit

The Adult Inpatient Unit is divided into East and West Wings with a total of 50 beds for adults experiencing severe mental health and / or addiction problems which cannot be managed in a community setting.

Patient and family-centered care is provided in a comprehensive, continuous, coordinated, and highly individualized manner. Patients are intimately involved in the decision-making progress regarding their care. Case conferences occur frequently throughout the course of an admission, and planning for a smooth and successful discharge begins on admission.

In addition to one-on-one nurse and physician counselling, patients are involved in a variety of supportive therapies, including psychoeducational groups, plus relaxation, recreational, and activity therapies. Other therapies, such as Electroconvulsive Therapy are used in selected cases.

Admission to the Adult Inpatient Unit is arranged by a Psychiatrist with admitting privileges in the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region, whether on staff at the Mental Health Clinic, Child and Youth Services, or in private practice in the community. The Adult Inpatient Unit is a designated facility under the Mental Health Services Act; therefore, patient care is governed by this Act.
