Child and Youth Mental Health (Ministry of Children and Family Development)

Our Child and Youth Mental Health team provides a range of assessment and treatment options for children, youth (0-18 years) and their families, including individual and group therapy, and consultation. Our programs are designed to support children and youth who are experiencing significant difficulties related to their thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
Children, youth and families can begin a referral by attending the CYMH walk-in intake clinic for a screening interview. No appointment is necessary. The walk-in intake hours are Wednesday’s and Thursday’s from 9-12 and 1-3.
