Mental Wellness Resources:
Your local CYMH Office
In Mission, intake hours are Tuesdays 9am – 12pm & 1pm – 3pm and the office is located at #201-7364 Horne Street. Phone number 604-820-4300.
Parents of children under 5 years old must attend intake alone (without the child present)
Parents of children 6 – 13 years old can attend with or without the child
Youth 14 – 17 years old can refer themselves without the consent of a parent OR the parent may accompany the youth to intake
Intake interviews typically take 45 minutes to one hour with a clinician and will conclude with next steps for the youth of concern.
As CYMH offices typically have waitlists of a few months or more and intakes are prioritized based on severity other options exist if you need faster support. Group support may also be available at your local CYMH office which is one way these offices address the need.
Isolating behaviours that are worsening (example – not leaving one’s bedroom in a week) should be taken seriously and may need more immediate assessment. This includes ageing parents and Seniors as well as youth. Resources available below include:
