Community Support Program (Child and Adolescent)
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.

The Community Support Program is for school aged children and adolescents registered with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health program. 

The program supports the work of the clinical treatment plan in the child/adolescent’s natural setting(s) – preschool, school, home, and community. It is typically more intensive than office based treatment. Parents/caregivers are provided with parent education, behaviour management strategies, and skill development to support their child’s diagnosis
