Counselling Services

Yorktown Child and Family Centre offers a full continuum of mental health treatment services for children from birth to eighteen years of age and their families or caregivers. Professionally qualified mental health staff work within a multi-disciplinary framework to ensure a comprehensive and holistic approach to child, youth and family needs. The length of counselling depends on needs and what the child, youth or family want to accomplish as a result of counselling. All situations are unique and services are individualized to the specific situation.
