When & Where
For the 1 in 5 children and youth with social, emotional and behavioural problems, every day poses a challenge. Just getting up in the morning can be difficult for a child suffering from depression or anxiety. Facing bullying, difficulty conentrating at school, conflict with family, feeling alone...these issues are very real and very painful.
But we know that treatment works and early intervention is critical.
