At Crossroads Children’s Mental Health Centre we understand that parenting is hard. We all do our best but sometimes despite this our child’s behavior can frustrate and worry us.
Crossroads is at the forefront of proven treatment approaches, including practice and training in Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), which is increasingly recognized as a best practice model in the delivery of mental health services for children and youth. We believe every child wants to do well and would if they could. When they can’t, it’s because they are lacking the skill(s) required to do well. We will teach you and your child these skills and more.
Here is one of our YouTube videos (20 minutes) to give you a better idea about who we are and what we do at Crossroads:
If your child is coming to us for therapy, please watch this 5 minute video together:
