Our Child & Family Clinic provides free, quick access to services for families seeking help for their infant, toddler or child’s severe social, emotional and behavioural challenges. No referral is required.
Clinic participants may access a counselling session where our experienced, professional staff help identify issues and equip families with tools and strategies to address their concerns.
Do you have concerns about:
Your child’s behaviour?
Your child’s emotional state?
How the pandemic has affected your child?
A family conflict?
Other parenting issues?
The focus of each session is determined by your family’s unique needs. Our goal is to help generate solutions to address your concerns and leave you feeling reassured.
