SPRUCE PSYCHIATRIC ASSOCIATES
Quality care for your mental health
Putting the 'care'
back into healthcare
At Spruce, we pride ourselves on being personable and compassionate while delivering a modern health care experience backed by science.
Our team of psychiatric nurse practitioners have the expertise to treat a range of mental health conditions. Providing quality psychiatric care is our commitment to you.
If you are in crisis, please call 899 (24-hour Crisis Line). For medical emergencies, please call 911. We do not provide crisis or emergent care.
A modern approach to mental health
Our intake process is hands-on and we take the time to get to know you and your individual needs. We then create an effective evidence-based treatment plan tailored to suit you. Most appointments typically include medication management with a supportive therapy component.
We talk about you, your life both past and present, your medical and medication history including any concerns relating to treatment.
We take the time to fully understand your symptoms so we can make an accurate diagnosis. We then help you better understand your symptoms and diagnosis so that you are empowered during treatment.
Our treatment plans are always tailored to your individual needs and may include medication in combination with supportive therapy. However, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan.
Areas of focus
We have the knowledge and expertise to effectively diagnose and treat a range of psychiatric conditions. Below is a list of the more common conditions we treat.
Due to telehealth restrictions, the following disorders are best treated in-person
Psychosis, active self-harm, suicidal thoughts, recent psychiatric hospitalization, crisis care and substance abuse. We also do not prescribe controlled substances during the intake appointment and prescribe them sparingly over the telehealth platform due to the need for additional monitoring.
Who we are
We are a professional association of independent Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners with common values and ethical standards.
Spruce was founded by Eliza Brink, a well respected psychiatric nurse practitioner, with the goal of bringing together class leading psychiatric nurse practitioners who care deeply about their patients mental health.
All of our Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners have a range of clinical experience and attend regular seminars to discuss the latest evidence to best inform patient care. We hold ourselves, and each other, to the highest ethical and professional standards.
We look forward to working with you!
