|Description||We accept physician/psychiatrist/pediatric referrals for children/youth up to age 17 ½ years old whose main reason for referral is the presence of anxiety or mood symptoms, and for whom those symptoms are the most impairing psychiatric/psychological condition. We do accept comorbidity, but the comorbid condition should not be the most impairing problem. We also ask that when there is a custody dispute about the child, the custody dispute be resolved clearly before we assess.
The Mood and Anxiety Service offers psychosocial interventions for children, youth and parents/caregivers in group format (ages 10- 18)
When a referral for treatment is received, a clinician in the Mood and Anxiety Service reviews the referral information, consults with the psychiatrist as needed, and meets with the child/youth (and parents/caregivers) to discuss the referral and foster engagement in treatment. If there is a good fit between the patient's needs and the psychosocial treatments available in the Mood and Anxiety Service, the child/youth and parents/caregivers are offered the appropriate treatment when it is next available.
Psychological education groups are also offered to parents/caregivers wanting to better understand mood and anxiety difficulties in children and youth and to better support and advocate for their children.
