Welcome to The Davidson Institute’s Virtual Psychiatry Unit

At The Davidson Institute, we understand the healing power of familiar environments. That’s why we proudly introduce our innovative Virtual Psychiatry Unit—a pioneering approach that transforms patient care by bringing psychiatric interventions into the comfort and safety of your home.

Experience the Future of Psychiatric Care
Our Virtual Psychiatry Unit is designed for eligible clients who can manage their care at home, offering a safe, convenient alternative to traditional hospital stays. Your home becomes your personal healing space, turning into a virtual hospital room that not only includes the presence of friends, family, and pets but also ensures seamless digital connections to our dedicated care teams.

Comprehensive Care at Your Fingertips
Patients in the Virtual Psychiatry Unit receive continuous support from a multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, general practitioners, peer support workers, social workers, and other health professionals—all available via video chat, phone calls, and instant messaging. Essential medical equipment is provided to all patients, allowing for the remote monitoring of vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation levels, temperature, and weight, with data securely accessed by clinicians on their laptops.

Personalized and People-Centered Care
Our Virtual hospital model allows more patients to receive the timely treatment they need at home safely and conveniently. By increasing our capacity and offering people-centered solutions, we not only enhance patient care but also contribute to the sustainability of our health system.

During their admission, patients can continue their day-to-day activities while focusing on recovery goals, with all necessary acute supports in place. This model has proven particularly effective for diverse groups, including post-partum mothers and young adults facing mental health challenges for the first time.

24/7 Support and Engaging Community Activities
Patients have access to 24-hour nursing support and monitoring, regular medication management, frequent psychiatric assessments, and collaborative care planning—mirroring the support of a traditional hospital setting.

At The Davidson Institute, we are dedicated to advancing mental health care by embracing innovation that respects personal comfort and promotes faster recovery. Join us as we redefine mental health support, one home at a time.
