We Can Help When…

The Children’s Mental Health Services (Under 18)

We can help when a child or youth:

  • Could hurt himself/herself or others.
  • Is involved with fire play.
  • Has had a significant loss or serious traumatic event.
  • Is aggressive, violent or bullying.
  • Is involved in at-risk behaviours (drugs/alcohol, sex, illegal activity).
  • Has serious challenges with relationships, feelings or behaviours.
  • Is experiencing significant emotional distress.

Research has shown that early intervention is critical to providing a hopeful and healthy future. If not addressed, these kids may suffer needlessly and become a stress on their families, their school, other kids, and the community.

Every child/youth’s mental health is important. Through care and working together, we can build healthy minds, healthy lives, and healthy communities.
