Psychology Services

Psychology services are part of the Mental Health Program and while the majority of referrals come from Psychiatry, we also collaborate with other departments such as Oncology, Nephrology, ICU, Family Medicine, the Diabetic Clinic etc. Our interns have the opportunity to work with a multiethnic population of patients, 18 years and older, in both English and French, and as part of a multidisciplinary team.

As a McGill-affiliated hospital, our mission also includes Teaching and Research. We believe that psychology interns need a sound foundation of theoretical knowledge and practical skills to assess and work with our population. The internship program at St. Mary’s Hospital aims to provide an intense and in-depth clinical experience, including psychological testing, to enable interns to become competent and autonomous professionals. We participate in research endeavors with McGill as well as other academic, health and community institutions. Internally, we aim at conducting quality studies and evaluations of our services at every possible venue.

Our staff psychologists’ theoretical orientations range from psychodynamic to cognitive-behavioral, including humanistic, existential, motivational interviewing and transcultural approaches. Our main clinical services include individual psychotherapy, couple, family, group therapy, crisis intervention, and psychological assessments (intelligence, cognition and personality testing). Interns have the opportunity to participate in most of these activities.
