To Make a Referral:
You can refer your child by calling (902) 543-5400. Your child can also be referred by your family doctor who will explain the process to you. No one else can make a referral on your behalf without your knowledge and permission.
Programme staff will decide with you which options are best suited to your child's needs. The program offers:
- Individual therapy
- Family therapy
- Education sessions
- Group treatments
- School-based services
- Psychiatric consultation
- Intensive home and community-based services
- Referrals to more appropriate services.
If a mental health problem is serious enough, the program or an Emergency Room Service of South Shore Health can refer you to the IWK for a further assessment and possible admission.
