Anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, emotional dysregulation, family conflict and trauma, self-harm and problems related to alcohol and drugs are common issues for the children and youth who come into the CYMH clinics.
Our CYMH team also works closely with teachers and school counsellors, school police officers, work-based family assistance programs, mental-health nurses, physicians and, of course, parents, said Maybie.
Within the provincial mandate, Maybie says CYMH has a special focus on early childhood intervention (for children aged up to six years), providing parents/caregivers with opportunities for insight regarding their childs development and attachment needs.
