Craigwood’s Community Mental Health Counselling service offers individual youth counselling sessions to help youth and families address a wide variety of concerns and problems faced in daily life.
Youth 12 years of age or older may access this service on their own, but where indicated we will encourage the involvement of parents.
Typical of the kinds of concerns youth and families bring forward are:
• Suicidal thoughts, feelings or actions
• School concerns (bullying, cyber- bullying, other struggles)
• Gender questioning
• Transition struggles (to high school; to college)
• Interpersonal Conflict
After the intake appointment, youth will be placed in one of the following programs:
This program offers 3 sessions of counselling that take place within a 6-week timeline. Master’s-Level Clinicians offer goal-based counselling, which means that a youth will choose a goal to work on throughout the length of service. A youth is encouraged to think about their goal before they start in services.
This program offers up to 8 sessions of counselling for youth. Master’s-Level Clinicians offer goal-based counselling, which means that a youth will choose a goal to work through this program and a youth is encouraged to think about their goal before they start services. An assessment will be completed at the beginning and end of service to help identify any needs and progress.
Access to the Community Mental Health programs provided through calling Tandem at 519-433-0334. Tandem will book an intake with Craigwood’s intake team to start the process.
