Child and Youth General Mental Health Program

Type of Service

Counselling and Treatment

Program Description

We are an outpatient mental health service offering treatment for children and youth up to their eighteenth birthday, and their families who are struggling with Anxiety, Depression, Attention-Deficit Disorders, behavioural problems, learning difficulties and other serious mental health concerns and family dysfunction that have not improved with previous interventions. This clinic offers specific services in Neurodevelopmental Disorders, Mood and Anxiety Disorders, Family Therapy, Psychological Testing, and Individual and/or Group Therapy. At the initial consultation, if it is determined that psychiatric services are required, a Psychiatrist, or Psychiatric Resident/Fellow will step in, or a subsequent consultation appointment will be scheduled. Psychiatric consultation and psychological assessments are conducted on an as needed basis in collaboration with the Psychiatrist and/or Psychologist.

Referrals from Physicians, Family Health Teams and Nurse Practitioners in Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (KFL&A) are processed through our Centralized Triage process in collaboration with our partners at The Maltby Centre (formally known as Pathways for Children and Youth) who are the lead children’s mental health agency in KFL&A. Referrals can also be sent directly to our program from community professionals such as School Boards and Children’s Mental Health Agencies. Physicians, Family Health Teams, and Nurse Practitioners from outside of KFL&A can also refer to our services, and referrals will be triaged accordingly.
