Mental Health Services

Children First is an accredited children’s mental health agency.


Mental health services for young children and their families comprise a wide range of preventive and treatment interventions.  Building safe and secure, nurturing and dependable relationships to primary caregivers is critically important to a young child’s social and emotional development and their ongoing ability to develop healthy relationships and behaviour.

Services emphasize early identification of child and family strengths and needs and the provision of evidence informed services.

Prevention services are designed to foster resiliency and build social and emotional competence

Services may include:

  • Individualized and comprehensive child and family assessment.
  • Brief therapy
  • Family and caregiver skills building and support
  • Counselling and therapy
  • Psychological consultation and may include assessment

Services are provided in the family’s home, in the community and at the agency office and may involve consultation or active collaboration with other service providers.

Small concerns, or big challenges, we’re here to help.
