About Program
The Child and Youth Mental Health Outreach Program offers services and support to children and youth with mental health concerns.  This support is extended to the families of these clients.

All services are provided to youth and children using community and home based locations.  This program supports children, youth and families to better understand mental illness and to build skills while reducing/managing symptoms with the goal of increasing opportunities for socialization, increasing inclusion in the community and improving capabilities in the personal, social, and vocational aspects of their lives. Children and youth are assisted to access other community resources including schools and networks to further the support of these goals.  Strong, integrated case management with both the referring Mental Health Clinician and other significant members of the client’s personal and professional family is a key component.  The service attempts to work with the child/youths strengths and service plans are built around what the family/person believes will work for them.

Who Qualifies/Eligibility
Children and youth living in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows up to the age of 19 years.   Children and youth who have identified mental health concerns, and are connected with a Mental Health Clinician at Ministry of Children and Family Development.  Referrals come directly from the Child and Youth Mental Health Team at the Ministry of Children and Family Development.
