Child & Youth Mental Health & Addictions
We support youth and families
Our Child & Youth Mental Health and Addictions workers provide support services to children, youth and their families experiencing mental health and addictions difficulties. If you are struggling with mental health and/or addictions, our workers offer confidential one-on-one, group or family support meetings.
Providing a safe and welcoming environment, our workers will answer any questions you have about the programs and services available to you, make referrals to other resources when needed, and maintain strict confidentiality regarding all personal information, conversations and referrals.
Another way we can assist individuals and families who are struggling with mental health and addictions is through referrals to treatment services in your area. Our workers collaborate with local community agencies to provide culturally-appropriate treatment services. Assisting individuals and families to identify their need for intensive treatment programs, our workers liaise with treatment programs, assist individuals to ensure all requirements are met, access funding for treatment services as required, and ensure that supports are in place once treatment is completed.
Apart from this, our workers also have a focus on community education by coordinating workshops on addiction and mental health awareness. They develop and promote traditional activities and healing programs, and participate in children and youth programs such as traditional programs and sports and recreation. Watch our calendar for events and workshops offered in your location.
Our Child & Youth Mental Health and Addictions program is offered in Beausoleil First Nation, Georgina Island First Nation, Scugog Island First Nation, Chippewas of Rama First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, Alderville First Nation, Moose Deer Point First Nation and Wahta Mohawks.
