We have several practitioners who treat underage patients for a variety of concerns. We work with parents to support young ones and help grow their confidence.
Patients under the age of 12 begin their journey with an hour-long parent intake appointment. This helps our practitioners better grasp what your concerns and treatment goals are, as well as to get a better idea of what home is like. We keep in touch with periodic 30-minute parent update sessions, so you remain involved in your child’s care.
Patients over the age of 12 must provide their written consent to share details of their appointments with anyone, in accordance with provincial and college regulations and PHIPA.
We also understand that being a parent to a young person experiencing mental health difficulty is very challenging. We also offer parenting support sessions to help you with your own concerns so that you can be at your best for your family.
