Late-Life Schizophrenia Clinic

CAMH's Late-Life Schizophrenia Clinic (LLS) provides psychiatric consultation and treatment when needed for:

  1. patients who have had schizophrenia or a related disorder since an early age and are now age 60 or above
  2. patients who develop a psychotic disorder late in life.
 Integrated Care Pathways (ICPs) provide a framework for individualized and group evidence-based interventions that may include the following based on comprehensive cognitive and functional assessments:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

An individual or group therapy that can help address psychoses or insomnia

Cognitive Behavioural Social Skills Training (CBSST)
An evidence-based group therapy that has been developed to improve social function in clinically stable older patients with schizophrenia or a related disorder. The groups meet once a week and the course of therapy is typically for 18 weeks.
Cognitive Remediation Therapy (CRT)

An evidence-based intervention designed to improve abilities such as working memory, cognitive flexibility, attention and planning, as well as improve social functioning.

The interprofessional team also has a number of special interests related to late-life psychosis including: brain imaging, genetics, and assessment of patients not on any antipsychotic or on more than one.
