Psychiatric Outpatient Program (POP)
This program offers a psychodynamic 12-week day therapy program, focusing on insights gained through structured group therapy. Space is available for 24 patients, with 12 new patients joining the program every six weeks. Patients may be referred to the program by a psychiatrist, family doctor or mental health professional.

The interdisciplinary team is composed of mental health practitioners including nurses, psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists a spiritual care chaplain. The group psychotherapy sessions focus on gaining insight into unhealthy relational styles through a specific focus on communication skills, assertiveness, emotional awareness, coping skills, core beliefs, anger management and relationships.

Patients who would benefit from more group therapy after they have completed the six-week program are welcome to attend the Insight Follow-up

I have an intake interview on May 27th, next Tuesday. I would start on June 2.

i really need the help right now and the only alternative is inpatient.

i don't really believe it will help. i know that that isn't the best attitude to go in with, but i'm severely depressed and that's what's going through my head right now. i intend to do (do or do not, there is no try) everything they recommend. it's not very rational to give up without doing so.

i think the hardest thing will be to be honest and admit to what i feel and i think.

Well, I got into the program. I'm not sure if that means I'm * really sick * Psychiatric Outpatient Program (POP) or that they think I'm well enough to benefit from it.

They don't have anything in my area like this Psychiatric Outpatient Program (POP) I wish they did. Although I do hate group therapy, but if I never do it how am I suppose to get better? Ugh.
