The Outpatient Program

Crisis and urgent assessment and treatment for children and adolescents with mental health difficulties of an internalizing nature, and their families, are a dominant focus of service delivery.

The Outpatient Program of the Child and Adolescent Centre offers assessment and treatment of children and adolescents who are 17 years of age or younger. 

Following the initial assessment if ongoing services are to be provided at the Outpatient Program, this may include cognitive behavioural therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, dialectical behavioural therapy, family therapy, individual therapy, group therapy and/or pharmacotherapy. However, there may not be further involvement after the initial assessment.

Services are delivered by an interdisciplinary team consisting of psychiatrists, social workers, family therapists, and psychologists.
