Mental Health


Referrals and claims are now in separate forms.


Complete a referral form to refer a patient to:

  • the PHO to select an external provider
  • the PHO to refer to a preferred external provider (as specified in the referral form)
  • advise that a patient has been referred to a credentialed Mental Health Nurse working in the practice

The referral form requires the provider to complete a PHQ9 questionnaire with the patient.

Referrals are submitted and show in Halcyon as accepted requiring review until triaged/referred by the PHO.

If the provider also wants to claim for the referral consult they must complete a claim form.

A referral to a credentialed nurse must be managed by the practice.
Please notify the credentialed nurse that a referral has been made.


A claim form should be completed for mental health consults by GPs, NPs or credentialed nurses.

  2. The GP or NP notifies the credentialed nurse
  3. The credentialed nurse takes up the referral and sees the patient
  4. The credentialed nurse completes a claim form
