Mental health for kids

Mental health and addictions issues affect everyone, including children and youth.

Children and youth experiencing mental health issues face unique challenges. Working collaboratively with parents and caregivers as partners in treatment is essential.

Early intervention and support of healthy emotional and social development lays the foundation for mental health and resilience throughout life.

Eastern Health provides many mental health and addictions services focusing specifically on children, youth and families. Services offered vary from:

  • psychoeducational parent groups,
  • educational sessions,
  • treatment groups, and
  • therapy.

These services are essential because the emotional well-being of children is as important as their physical health.
