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.  

Starting therapy can be scary and difficult to navigate, but we are here to help.  


If you are not sure where to start, our dedicated Care Team is available from Monday to Saturday from 9am to 6pm to answer all your questions and make personalized recommendations to best meet your needs. They will connect you with our stellar practitioners and help guide you through the booking process, and a dedicated Wellness Concierge will remain in touch to ensure the best fit for you.

Short answer: Yes, we do!

Several of our structured Programs include medication management, up to five follow-up appointments after an hour-long consultation. This allows our doctors to see how your medications are working and get you to a dosage that works best for you, your body, and your life. Once these follow-ups are completed you will be discharged to the care of your family doctor or GP for ongoing management.


Patients who are not enrolled in one of our Programs are encouraged to contact our Care Team to find out your options.  


External patients are welcome to send in referrals outside of program involvement. Please note the wait time for a Psychiatrist appointment is currently 3-5 months, and following your one-time medication consultation your comprehensive note with recommendations will be sent to your family doctor or GP, to whom you will be discharged for ongoing management.
