Child and Adolescent Services (Cape Breton) - Child Youth and Family (Antigonish-Strait Richmond)
Addictions
Mental Health

The IWK Health Centre provides children and adolescents throughout the province with specialized mental health and addictions services. To learn more about these services visit the IWK Health Centre website.

Child and Adolescent Services/Child Youth and Family provide mental health and addiction services to children and youth (under the age of 19) within a client and family centered context. 

Families are essential partners in the treatment of the childhood onset of mental health and addictions disorders, and we strive to include families in assessment and treatment and to partner with families to support health and wellness for their children. 

Treatment may include group or individual therapy, in-home support provided by case managers, behavioral interventionists or community mental health nurses, medication or a combination of those. Assessment of autism spectrum disorders is also available through this service.
