Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Treatment

EHN Bellwood Toronto’s Mood, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Program is designed for people who are having trouble functioning in their daily lives due to anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, or a combination of mood disorders, and for whom community-based support may no longer be sufficient or effective. 

Our medical team – including psychotherapists, social workers, physicians, and nurses – guides the evidence-based treatment you need to make meaningful progress towards recovery. And, while you receive treatment, your loved ones receive the education they need to help you sustain your progress once you leave EHN Bellwood Toronto.

Our Approach to Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Treatment

EHN Bellwood Toronto’s integrative model of care is grounded in trauma-informed and patient-centred practices and incorporates various therapeutic techniques, including:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for developing healthy behaviours and helpful thought patterns.
  • Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) to manage emotions and relationships, implement mindfulness practices, and cope with crises.
  • One-on-one psychotherapy for an understanding and safe space for discussing personal recovery concerns and developing recovery objectives.
  • Physical health support including regular exercise and nutritional guidance to heal the body in addition to the mind.
  • Psychoeducational sessions to learn about a variety of mental health topics. 
  • Mindfulness for creating healthy habits that last.
  • Mental health maintenance planning to identify relapse warning signs and develop strategies to support long-term recovery.
  • Medication assistance therapy, if needed, for providing the best opportunity for healing.

A Day in EHN Bellwood Toronto's Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Program

Our medical experts carefully design every aspect of the EHN Bellwood Toronto experience to provide patients with the greatest opportunity for recovery. This is what a day at EHN Bellwood Toronto might look like in our Depression, Bipolar Disorder, and Anxiety Program.



After enjoying a healthy, chef-prepared breakfast, you’ll set your intentions for the day with some self reflection. Then you’ll attend an educational session on a topic like trauma or the connection between mental health, addiction, and technology. You’ll wrap up the morning with an invigorating workout.



After a delicious, nutritionist-planned lunch, you’ll attend a one-on-one therapy session or a workshop focused on goal setting or acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Some days you’ll have free time to focus on self care routines.



In the evening, you’ll practice the skills you’ve been learning in therapy with your DBT group. Then you’ll unwind with some more physical recreation, like a volleyball game with fellow patients, and dinner to follow.
