Maryvale Children’s Mental Health Centre to begin teaching families mental health strategies and self care

March 1, 2016

Maryvale is a Windsor children’s mental health treatment centre that treats adolescents who are experiencing very serious emotional, psychological, and mental distress. The centre’s Teaching Families Mental Health Strategies and Self Care program teaches youth how to better manage their disruptive emotions and helps parents to more effectively support their children. Central to the program is the coach role who not only teaches the strategies but also acts as a navigator by helping the families make connections with community supports like budgeting services, educational help, and respite services. GSC funding will make the coach role possible. For more information, visit www.maryvale.ca.
