Northern Lights Lodge

Northern Lights Lodge provides tertiary mental health services to individuals within the North East region who are experiencing serious mental illness requiring a longer and more intensive approach to assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation than is provided by district level inpatient services. Our goals are to:

  • Assess and treat individuals with complex and refractory problems in the least restrictive environment possible
  • Optimize independence, community integration, and quality of life
  • Develop bridges between district inpatient services, community services across the region, and the specialized programs of the North Bay Regional Health Centre

Northern Lights Lodge inpatient unit offers in-depth interprofessional psychiatric assessment, treatment, and rehabilitation for a period of 6 to 12 months. Following discharge, consultative services and time-limited follow up are provided by the Community Outreach Service of the Psychiatric Rehabilitation and Recovery Program.

Admission Criteria

In addition to the above, individuals being referred must:

  • Have a diagnosis of serious mental illness
  • Be 18 years of age or older
  • Reside within the catchment area of NBRHC
