The Northern Psychiatric Outreach Program at CAMH (NPOP-C)’s primary mandate is to provide patients and families direct psychiatric consultation and care from psychiatric consultants who travel on a regular basis to rural and remote communities in Northeastern and Northwestern Ontario. These consultants also provide extensive indirect and informal consultation, support and education to community agencies, mental health professionals, and members of the public in the communities they visit.
Through an affiliation with the University of Toronto, Department of Psychiatry, NPOP-C also promotes northern outreach opportunities to psychiatry residents. Through a program of short electives and longer rotations, NPOP-C provides a wide range of placements for psychiatry residents to experience supervised training in remote and rural areas.
Complementary to the MOHLTC-funded activities, NPOP-C also provides clinical consultation, education and support to Nunavut, through a separate contract directly funded by the Government of Nunavut.
