Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care

This specialty mental health hospital provides an extensive range of both acute and longer-term psychiatric inpatient and outpatient services. Recognized internationally for its research, the hospital’s main administration building is a heritage site that opened around 1860, constructed with help from residents of the Reformatory for Boys. Many other historical buildings are found on the site, juxtaposed with new construction.
