Ontario’s continuum of care model for children and youth

Craigwood is a fully accredited children’s mental health agency serving, primarily, the communities of Middlesex County and southwestern Ontario. We often support communities beyond our usual service area with our specialized experience supporting highly complex youth.

Most Craigwood clientele are young people with complex mental health needs who present with an array of emotional, behavioural, and psychological difficulties. Their families are stressed with a variety of issues, which often result in the placement of their child outside of the home.

We believe strongly in providing a “continuum of care” which matches the evolving needs of individual youth to our broad range of resources in:


Our philosophy of care

Craigwood therapeutic services are built on a multi-disciplinary approach in which staff, parents, youth and community partners work together. Every client in our care is supported by our team of Masters-level clinicians, graduate Child & Youth Workers, Social Workers and administrative staff.

Our Foundations Model spells out the basic principles that guide us in our mission to achieve the best possible outcomes for each of our clients.
