|Description & Services|
|Description||Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) at Trillium Health Partners treat children and youth who have either a diagnosed psychiatric condition, or significant symptoms or unusual behaviour indicative of a psychiatric condition.
Treatment may include individual, family or group therapy, psychiatric assessment, psychological testing and medication consultation and follow up. Services also include community outreach, education and collaboration with other agencies and schools.
This service also offers a Rapid Response Team for children, which accepts referrals directly from staff in the Emergency Care Centre and the inpatient Paediatric Unit of Trillium Health Centre. This rapid access to outpatient services can either provide an alternative to hospitalization or decrease the length of a hospital admission, when appropriate.
Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services provides outpatient services for children and adolescents up to age 19, and their families, who live in Mississauga and south Toronto.
|Hours||Appointments for assessments are scheduled during the day; follow-up appointments are available during the day and on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
