About the Pediatric Outpatient Clinic

Our outpatient programs support the needs of youth and their families by offering many of the services needed in one place. Through our program, patients can access medication management, individual and family therapy, group therapy, occupational therapy, education, and support. 

Guiding you through the care experience

The youth’s care is directed by a psychiatrist and a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation (Open Access appointment) is completed in a timely manner following the referral call. Ongoing medication management, therapy, or intake to our day program are available following this evaluation.
