The Regional Aboriginal Mental Health Service (RAMHS) provides culturally appropriate supports to Aboriginal patients as they return home.
To build capacity within NBRHC, the service is involved in developing and facilitating educational opportunities regarding Aboriginal cultures and world views.
The service assists in case management and discharge planning with Aboriginal patients who are referred from the regional mental health programs of the North Bay Regional Health Centre. The service provides supports to treatment teams and patients while they are preparing for discharge from the hospital, and offers ongoing follow-up in their communities.
