About the Program
EHN Canada’s Mood and Anxiety Program (MAP) is a seven-week, group-based, residential program. Each patient may receive an assessment from a psychologist or psychiatrist, as needed, on a case-by-case basis. Patients participate in daily small-group sessions, and have weekly one-on-one sessions with a therapist.
Individuals must have one of the following primary diagnoses to participate in the program:
- Mood disorders, such as depression or bipolar disorder. Treatment of bipolar disorder is available exclusively at Bellwood Health Services and is not offered at Edgewood Treatment Centre.
- Anxiety disorders, such as the following:
- Generalized anxiety
- Panic disorder
- Social disorder
The Mood and Anxiety Program (MAP) uses evidence-based interventions including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Motivational Enhancement, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
The program is individualized and goal directed. Patients have opportunities to participate in activity activation and in-vivo exposure as indicated. In addition to small-group sessions and weekly one-on-one sessions with a therapist, patients participate in daily physical exercise, recreational activities, and nutrition education sessions; their families are provided with support and psychoeducation.
