USTAT - Urgent Short Term Assessment and Treatment

If your mental health is suffering go see your Doctor right away. We can help but you must be referred to us by a general practitioner or your family Doctor.


However bleak things may feel, you are not alone. Our USTAT program provides you with up to 10 clinical counselling sessions. Take the first step and go see your family Doctor about getting a referral.


We support you with accessible crisis interventions and brief psychotherapy treatments. We deliver clinical support on a priority basis, responding to the urgency of your situation and working collaboratively and actively with your Doctor.


What are the steps to getting USTAT support?


1. Visit your Doctor and explain your circumstances


2. If appropriate, your Doctor refers you to the main USTAT office (in downtown Victoria)


3. A mental health intake worker calls you


4. If appropriate, your file is forwarded to us at the Sooke Family Resource Society
