Welcome to Paediatric Mental Health Care (PMHC).

At PMHC our focus is on enhancing the quality of life and well-being of children and teenagers experiencing mental health difficulties. Adaptive functioning during the child and adolescent years is crucial for healthy development later in life. At PMHC we want to play an active role in helping youth build a strong foundation for future growth, resiliency, and psychological flexibility.

Our goal is to provide developmentally appropriate and empirically supported mental health care in a compassionate, respectful, culturally sensitive, and client-centered manner. Through the use of multidisciplinary approaches (i.e., consultations with medical practitioners, educators, and other professionals within the youth’s circle of care) we strive to develop a comprehensive and holistic understanding of our clients’ mental health strengths and needs. We aim to understand the complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of mental health hardships.

We are deeply committed to working with youth and their families to reduce the frequency, intensity, and duration of mental health struggles. Children and teens with mental health challenges are not “broken” and at PMHC our support is not intended to “fix” youth who are in need of assistance. Instead, we want to work collaboratively with our clients and their caregivers to ensure they have the tools that are needed to “boss back” mental health challenges with the aim of mental health progress, not perfection. With PMHC, your mental health journey will not be navigated alone! We will help you achieve more optimal mental wellness one step at a time.
