About the CAMPH

The Child and Adolescent Mental Health Program (CAMHP) is a regional provider of short term crisis and stabilization care for individuals 17 years of age and under who are struggling with mental health issues. Admission to this program is on the recommendation of a psychiatrist.

We are a 9 bed unit – 2 shared rooms, 5 private rooms and 2 shared washrooms. Our multidisciplinary team consists of child and adolescent psychiatrists, nurses, child and youth counsellors and a social worker. We are focused on providing you with a compassionate, inclusive and supportive environment. The individualized care we provide uses a family-based approach to provide evidence-supported treatment aimed at crisis stabilization and rapid return to the community for treatment. Treatments may include:

  • Academic learning on the unit
  • Transitional planning for back to school
  • Individual and group based programming
  • Psychiatric assessment and medication review
  • Referrals to community partners for treatmentéservices following discharge

In our unit, we provide a team approach to caring for our patients. You are an important member of this team and will be included in all stages of your care from admission to discharge. Family members and/or other supports can also be involved, with your permission. Our role during your stay is to support your treatment goals and enhance your recovery.


We all share the responsibility related to privacy and confidentiality. Please rest assured that all matters on the unit are treated as confidential and are not shared beyond the team and circle of care without your consent. Your information is kept private as outlined in the Personal Health Information Protection Act, 2004 (PHIPA).
