The GASMA is the gateway to accessing the mental health continuum of services on the territory of the CIUSSS du Centre-Ouest-de-l'Île-de-Montréal. The GASMA is mandated to assess users in order to direct them to the services that correspond to the needs presented. The GASMA assessment process is decisional. The services offered are :
- Receipt of requests for adult mental health services;
- Evaluation of resquests by a multidisciplinary team;
- Prioritization and referral of the person and his/her family to the appropriate service - 1st, 2nd and 3rd line and community organizations and liaison/consultation with these teams;
- Initiate screening, assessment, care and treatment protocols.
GASMA promotes the best practices of the Programme Québécois Pour les Troubles Mentaux (PQPTM). It promotes access to services for users by identifying the best service at the best time by the best professional. The use of evidence supports the clinical judgment of professionals to achieve this. The service demonstrated to be effective is offered according to the identified need’s priority in collaboration with the user.
