Visiting SickKids and the Department of Psychiatry

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is a big place. It can also be a confusing place, especially if you are coming for the first time. Please visit our Visiting SickKids page to find answers to questions you may have about coming to the hospital.  A listing of all clinics and their locations is available online or at the Information Desk or the Clinic Registration Desk, both of which are on the main floor of the Hospital in the Atrium.

The Department of Psychiatry is located on the first floor of the Hospital in The Burton Family Wing. 

The Psychiatry clinic (Room 1115) is best accessed using The Burton Family Wing elevators or the Black Elevators in front of Shoppers Drug Mart. If you are using the Black Elevators, go up one floor and turn left when you get out of the elevators.  Walk along the hall until you see the Hollywood theatre and turn left again.  The Psychiatry Clinic is further along that hall.

All patients must be referred by a patient's family doctor, paediatrician or other physician.


  • All patients require a referral to visit our clinic.
  • If you are a health-care professional, log in to eCHN to submit your referral. From your eCHN account, you will be seamlessly connected to SickKids e-referral platform, EpicCare Link.
  • Learn more about our referral process.
  • If the referral is urgent or emergent, please call SickKids hospital locating at 416-813-1500 and ask to speak to the appropriate service.  On weekends and after 6pm on weekdays, please contact the Fellow on call via SickKids locating at 416-813-1500.   
  • For support with making a referral, please call 1-866-883-8289 or 416-813-8289
