Wellness Centre – Medical Neighbourhood

The South Calgary PCN Wellness Centre is an important part of your Medical Neighbourhood. You receive most of your care in your family doctor’s office, but additional services are offered here. 

 

MENTAL WELLNESS

Mental wellness affects all of us. It includes our emotional, psychological, social and spiritual well-being. It touches every aspect of our lives, from how we handle stress, how we relate to our loved ones and those around us, and even how we make choices and major life decisions.

We are committed to providing the best resources within your Medical Home (doctor’s office) by increasing patient access to additional supports like talking directly with Primary Care Behavourial Health provider. We also have our Time to Talk (T2T) program which provides counselling for patients at the Wellness Centre.  T2T is for all ages and stages and is a referral program from your family physician.  All of our providers (therapists, social workers or nurses) can help with anxiety, stress, family violence, depression, loss and grief, life transitions, relationships, addiction, adjustment to illness and finding the right resources for you in the community. We also offer a variety of free workshops, including Happiness Basics, Anxiety to Calm, Journey Through Grief and the Mindful Journey.

Sometimes you need help getting started. An appointment with your family doctor is your first step. Whether you are experiencing mental wellness concerns in your life or are supporting someone who is, the South Calgary PCN has a variety of resources to help you.

NUTRITION SERVICES

Our nutrition services team includes registered nurses and registered dietitians.  Services include one-on-one appointments, group medical visits and an impressive variety of group workshops.  Our dietitians and nurses can help you with managing health concerns including but not limited to high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, overweight and obesity, eating disorders, digestive disorders, prenatal nutrition, fatty liver and ​early-stage kidney disease.

For one-on-one appointments a referral from your SCPCN family physician is required.

WORKSHOPS

Don’t wait any longer! Check out our Workshop page as we offer a large variety of health and emotional workshops that don’t need any referrals and they run year-round. Most are multi-week to help increase knowledge, understanding and create motivation for change.

FAMILY CARE CLINIC

The Family Care Clinic operates out of the Wellness Centre but is not a walk-in clinic.  To find a family doctor in our community, look at doctors accepting patients on our Directory tab.
