Complex psychological diagnoses often impact the entire family (siblings, parents, family dynamic).  We offer support that targets specific groups or concerns (e.g., siblings groups or anxiety groups for teens.

We have a public-private partnership.  We also deal with numerous contracts with public health authorities within the province so that we see the most complex cases out there.  Furthermore the contract from schools and indigenous groups are also taken by us.
