Crisis Services

If you or someone you know is in serious mental health crisis contact:

Huron Perth Helpline and Crisis Response Team at: 1-888-829-7484

Concerns related to imminent risk of self harm or harm to others receive an urgent response on a 24/7 basis. Crisis staff work with others, including hospital emergency staff to help stabilize the situation.

As part of our “Timely Access” Team we work with the staff of the Huron Perth Helpline and Crisis Response Team to provide follow-up contact with any client referred by the crisis team staff. With client consent this service provides post-hospitalization care to stabilize and determine need for ongoing service from the Huron-Perth Centre or other community options.

Counselling & Therapy Services

Our team of skilled therapists provide a range of individual, family and group counselling and therapy approaches to address a broad range of child and youth mental health concerns. We provide a range of psychotherapeutic interventions such as brief therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy and mindfulness to name a few. We have skilled clinicians in attachment, trauma and loss. Whenever possible we seek out current evidence-informed approaches to help with healing and to restore functioning.

Group therapy is provided to clients in service when a number of people would benefit from the provision of group service and when group therapy is a preferred method of treatment.

  • “Therapeutic Parenting”, a parent counselling group, combines a number of techniques within the philosophic frame of attachment and emotional regulation.
  • “Trauma Group”, a parent treatment group, provides trauma intervention for parents whose own past trauma/abuse is impacting their capacity to respond to their children’s needs, within the philosophic frame of attachment and emotional regulation.
  • Other topic -specific groups when there is a treatment issue identified by clinicians impacting clients in service

Intensive Services

  • Day Treatment – we operate two day treatment classrooms under Section 23 Agreements. These special educational settings provide a place where children and youth with more challenging needs can attend school within a therapeutic environment. Currently these classrooms are located in Clinton Public School and Anne Hathaway Public School with treatment staff provided by the Centre. This program is possible through partnership with the Avon Maitland District School Board, the Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board and the Huron-Perth Children’s Aid Society. CONTACT US

  • Support – 1-1 support from Child & Youth Workers in conjunction with clinicians; the service is provided in- office with some in -home/in- school service provided on a case by case basis. CONTACT US

  • Referral to Residential Care – access to residential care outside of our service area is by referral to London Middlesex and other regional resources via our coordinated access mechanism “Community Services Coordination Network”. CONTACT US

  • Referral for Service Resolution Process – with client consent, this process provides a forum through which individuals, families and service providers can explore a wide range of service options that contribute to an individualized plan to address more complex, child and youth needs. Clients whose needs may be challenging and require higher levels of inter-agency service coordination are discussed in an effort to confirm creative local solutions and/or to access specialized regional resources.
