When can I get an appointment?
You might have to wait a few weeks for your appointment with a psychiatrist.
If you need help sooner than that, tell the receptionist when you make the appointment. They may add you to a cancellation list to be seen faster.
Some psychiatrists work after hours or on weekends. This might make it easier to fit your appointments in around work, study or other commitments.
Where do I go to see a psychiatrist?
Psychiatrists have offices in private consulting rooms, community health clinics and public and private hospitals.
If you live in a remote area you might be able to have your appointment over the internet (telehealth).
