Child and Youth Mental Health Intake services support children, youth and their families with serious mental health difficulties and/or social, emotional or behavioural disturbances.

Your starting point for child and youth mental health support

Finding the right place for you and your family is important. The intake service is the starting point to learn what program is the best fit for each child or youth. These programs might be with Vancouver Coastal Health programs, another service provider or to resources to support your needs.

You do not need a doctor's referral for child and youth mental health intake teams.
