Health psychology

This team of psychologists help patients better manage, and live with, various chronic diseases including, but not limited to, sleep disorders, heart disease, diabetes, chronic pain, lung disease, and others. They may also present mental health problems commonly seen in a primary care context. A health psychologist also offers her services within the Chronic Disease Management Service. The team works with the help of interns and residents under their supervision.

Psychological services mainly include evaluation, consultation and short-term treatment. Interventions are adapted to the needs of individuals, couples or groups. Health psychology consultations are also available for health professionals and care teams.

We accept requests for consultations from ambulatory care clinics, and family physicians with privileges at Montfort. These requests must be sent directly to the Health psychology service by internal mail to room 1D 114, or by fax to 613‑748‑4995.

As a complement to the Pediatric clinic, we offer psychological services (assessment, consultation and short-term treatment) to children, teens and their families. These young patients struggle with attention deficits, hyperactivity, learning disorders, behavioural problems or other mental health problems commonly seen in a pediatric context (anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, etc.). Our interventions are adapted to individuals, families or groups. 

The pediatric psychology service does not take external referrals.

Please note that a medical referral is mandatory. 

The Community Stepped-Care Telehealth Program is an innovative program that responds to the critical need to provide French-speaking minority communities (FMCs) with better access to evidence-based psychological interventions.  

Stepped care is a promising approach to improving access and the quality of services offered to people suffering from disorders frequently encountered in primary care, such as anxiety and depression, as well as the psychological challenges associated with living with chronic physical illnesses.  

Academic hospital

The professionals working in this clinic actively participate in the hospital's academic mission through their training and clinical supervision of trainees, interns and doctoral level residents in psychology. As professors and researchers in psychology and/or medicine, they are affiliated with the University of Ottawa and/or the Université du Québec en Outaouais. Our health psychologists also contribute to the hospital's academic mission by being research members at the Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort and by contributing to various research projects related to their clinical services.
