With our first patient from Northern Health arriving the week of June 25, the BC psychosis program has reached capacity. We have a total of 25 patients from all health authorities and although Vancouver Coastal has more than its allocation of six, we intend to balance our admissions according to the access protocol and make room for more admissions in the coming weeks.
I’m pleased to report that some key positions are now filled. Our psychologist and psychometrist recently arrived, and our occupational therapist and music therapist are starting their work this week. We can now begin expanding our therapeutic programs.
