|Description and Service Details|
|Description (Service)||COVID-19 - The children’s mental health program will remain in operation. However, to do our part to limit exposure to others, employees will work from home, and will correspond with service users and community partners via telephone or email.
A children’s mental health service that links individuals and families with appropriate local resources to assist children and youth who may be experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties. Assistance can be particularly useful if the complex needs of an individual require a response from multiple service providers. In that situation, KIDS Team can help to coordinate access to the necessary supports.
In fulfilling its role, KIDS Team staff work collaboratively with other service providers to develop and monitor a comprehensive community service plan that has been designed to meet the identified needs of the child or youth. Also, if there is a need to augment existing ministry-funded services with additional supports, KIDS Team has access to a limited amount of provincial funding that can be utilized to purchase these resources.
