Community Mental Health

Your Health Record

Community Mental Health

The Health Records department is responsible for maintaining the health records of both current and former clients of the centre. It oversees the collection, storage, retention and access to client’s Personal Health Information (PHI).

How to obtain a copy of your record

The Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) governs the collection, use, and disclosure of PHI in Ontario. This Act gives clients the right to access and disclose their personal information.

A written request to the Health Records department is required to release any information contained in your health record.
