Youthdale Treatment Centres

Youthdale is a non-profit, charitable community agency funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and overseen by a public Board of Directors. Youthdale's clinical services include outpatient consultation, residential treatment, and psychiatric crisis response.

Youthdale’s "continuum of treatment" provides integrated mental health services to children and youth aged 6 to 18 and their families, simplifying access and allowing families to focus on their children's well-being. Youthdale's mandate also includes research into new approaches for helping troubled youth and their families. Youthdale’s comprehensive mental health services include mobile crisis response, psychiatric emergency admission and hospitalization, residential treatment, educational programming, and a variety of outpatient services. Youthdale provides family therapy for all the families of youth in our residential and day treatment programs. Outpatient services include: specialized assessment and consultation (i.e., psychiatric, psychological, neurological, and neuropsychological), sleep and family therapy for children residing with their parents or guardians. Youthdale also provides an Intensive Support and Supervision Program (ISSP) for young persons with mental health needs who are likely to be sentenced to custody for their criminal offences, but who can alternatively be appropriately supported and supervised in the community.

Psychological assessment and consultation is available to all of the above Youthdale programs. Additionally, a range of fee-for-service psychological assessments are offered on an outpatient basis.
