Mental Health In-Patient & Staff Summer BBQ 2017

Tis’ the season to be Q’ing!!!!

Back by popular demand, the In-Patient MH services will be holding its annual Summer BBQ.

For the past 6 years during the summer months our Mental Health Team spends a lunch with our in-patients enjoying burgers and various summer dishes on the 3C patio.

All of this was birthed to improve our relationships with our patients during a season where being cooped up in a hospital during our short Canadian summers can be increasingly depressing.  Not only do staff enjoy a break from the normal daily grind, but our patients also enjoy this event veering away from the usual hospital experience.  Here at TSRH we strive to improve the patient experience and Mental Health is one department where our patients always come first.

This years summer BBQ kicks off on Friday, June 30th on our wonderful 3C patio.  Like previous years our kick off party will feature musical performances from various former in-patients.  Food will be cooked by our resident BBQ master, Michael M.  And to spice this up for this years kick off party we will be having staff bring in various dishes/desserts to share ala potluck style.

Hope to see you all there!!!

When:  Friday, June 30, 2017 @ 1200hrs

Where:  3C (Birchmount) Patio

Following Dates throughout the summer:  July 14th, 18th & August 11th, 25th.

Inpatient Mental Health Summer BBQ Kickoff

It’s that time of year again, no not construction season, but BBQ season!

Every summer for the past 5 years the inpatient units have held a BBQ lunch for the patients as well as the staff.  The BBQs start on the week of the summer solstice (June 21) and goes on every other week until the end of August.

This event has constantly been a success and is back again.

The hospital setting can be extremely stressful, not only for staff but for patients as well.  The BBQs have given the patients and staff a relaxing atmosphere to enjoy the summer weather and food.

As like last year our kickoff BBQ will not only include delicious burgers and sides but as well as a Live Band.

So if you’re at the Birchmount Site next Friday, come by the 3C patio and enjoy some great food and music!
