The Psychological Trauma Program (PTP) is a non-OHIP funded Specialty Clinic that provides service to the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB).
We provide comprehensive psychiatric and psychological assessments, treatment, and disability management services for individuals referred by WSIB. Our goal is to help reduce the emotional, social, and economic costs associated with mental health problems in the workplace. We are committed to a holistic approach that supports individuals along their journey of recovery.
Referrals are often made following the experience of a psychological trauma. A traumatic event is one where a person experiences, witnesses, or is confronted with an event involving actual or threatened death, serious injury or threat to one’s physical integrity, or serious injury or threat to others’ physical integrity. Not all people who experience a traumatic event develop a psychological condition. It is common for people to experience some short-term psychological distress. If the distress persists longer than one month, however, a person may develop mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, posttraumatic stress, or chronic pain.
WSH is committed to addressing the barriers to recovery often faced by individuals with mental health and substance use concerns, such as stigma, level of comfort seeking treatment, inadequate “function-focused” treatment, and limited support with transitions to return to work.
A referral to the program is made by an injured worker’s Nurse Case Manager or Case Adjudicator at the WSIB.
