Child and Family Psychiatry Service v3

This specialized Women’s Mental Health Program grew out of the understanding that a woman’s emotional well being is inextricably connected to that of her children and family.

Services Provided:
The program provides consultation and short-term treatment for children aged 0 to 18 and their families, with concerns including: mood/anxiety, behaviour management, attention/hyperactivity, parenting, and parent-infant attachment.

Treatment may include:

  • parent counselling
  • family therapy
  • treatment with medication
  • individual therapy

We are very pleased to offer group therapy for mothers with postpartum anxiety/depression and their infants, provided jointly with the Reproductive Life Stages program.

Our child psychiatrists work in collaboration with the Women’s Mental Health psychiatrists and therapists to provide integrated care for families with parental mental health concerns.

We do not provide assessments related to custody or legal concerns.
