Did you know? 1 in 5 children and youth in Canada has a diagnosable mental health condition such as ADHD, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders & learning disabilities. Many more have milder but significant problems. Getting help early is so important.
Crisis Response & Urgent Care is a service that families, caregivers, children and youth can turn to at any time. Support staff are available 24/7.
OECYC’s professional therapists offer free, confidential counselling services to young people (0-18 years of age) and their families with no need to book an appointment.
We take a compassionate, non-judgmental approach to assess the nature of every situation, the level of risk, and the needs of the individual. Whether it’s crisis response, urgent care, or if you just need someone to listen, OECYC is here.
You can count on us to assist in identifying your strengths and to guide you in reframing situations. Together, we can explore options and choices to overcome a challenge or help you change your outlook.
Together we can develop a treatment plan and support positive, healthy coping skills. Serving children and youth as well as parents and caregivers, OECYC is committed to connecting all clients with programs and services that meet a family’s ongoing needs.
We focus on outcomes to ensure the long-term success of all our clients. Whether a client enters an OECYC program or is referred to another service, our goal is to help you achieve strength necessary to deal with any situation or issue that may arise.
