Counselling Services – Leamington, Belle River, Essex and Windsor

The outpatient service uses a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and  Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) to assist teens with diagnoses such as depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, and anxiety. The process is generally explored through 12 to 20 individual and/or family sessions, usually on a weekly basis. There is a component of psycho-education for both the youth and family, if agreed upon by youth and family. The approach focuses on exploring solutions, identifying available resources, and developing new approaches to coping with emotions, thoughts, and social situations.

Il comprend un élément lié à la psychoéducation à l’intention du jeune et de la famille, si toutes les personnes concernées sont d’accord. L’approche focalise sur l’exploration de solutions, le recensement des ressources disponibles et l’élaboration de nouvelles approches afin de gérer les émotions, les pensées et les situations sociales.

PreVenture Program

PreVenture is a workshop for youth aged 12-17 which aims to identify personality-related risk factors, such as anxiety, depression, and impulsivity, which may be associated with mental health concerns and substance misuse. Workshops aim to strengthen youths’ capacity to cope and provide them with the tools they need to pursue and attain their long-term goals.

The program was developed by Dr. Patricia Conrod, a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Université de Montréal, a clinical psychologist and a researcher at the CHU Sainte-Justine Research Center. Previous studies have demonstrated that the PreVenture program can effectively prevent or reduce alcohol misuse, drug use as well as conduct, and/or mental health concerns. Previous studies have also shown that the beneficial effects of the program can be maintained for two years after its delivery.

Programme Pré-Aventure

PreVenture est un atelier pour les jeunes de 12 à 17 ans qui vise à identifier les facteurs de risque liés à la personnalité, tels que l’anxiété, la dépression et l’impulsivité, qui peuvent être associés à des problèmes de santé mentale et à l’abus de substances. Les ateliers visent à renforcer la capacité des jeunes à faire face et à leur fournir les outils dont ils ont besoin pour poursuivre et atteindre leurs objectifs à long terme.

Le programme a été développé par Dr. Patricia Conrod, professeure au Département de psychiatrie de l’Université de Montréal, psychologue clinicienne et chercheuse au Centre de recherche du CHU Sainte-Justine. Des études antérieures ont démontré que le programme PreVenture peut efficacement prévenir ou réduire l’abus d’alcool, la consommation de drogues ainsi que les problèmes de comportement et/ou de santé mentale. Des études antérieures ont également montré que les effets bénéfiques du programme peuvent être maintenus pendant deux ans après sa mise en œuvre.


HDGH and Maryvale Adolescent Services introduce the Family Navigation Program

As Windsor-Essex’s Lead Agency of Child and Youth Mental Health Services, Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare (HDGH) is charged with local system planning in collaboration with its five core service provider agencies, Children First, HDGH’s Regional Children’s Centre, Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services, Family Respite Services and Windsor-Essex Community Health Centre (WeCHC) that serve children and youth under 18 years of age.

Together, our teams have been focused on improving outcomes through building system capacity, quality initiatives that improve access and navigation along with ensuring a common experience for all children, young people and their families when it comes to mental health and addiction services in our region.

Today, we are happy to announce partners HDGH’s Regional Children’s Centre (RCC) and Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services have co-developed the Family Navigation Program, a system resource helping underserved youth and their families connect and navigate the often complex local mental health system. The Family Navigation team is made up of a Navigators, one from each organization, working with youth and families who have historically experienced barriers to accessing mental health care.

As one of the most culturally diverse regions in Canada, our Navigators will work directly with community agencies like yours, getting to know your teams as well as the members of the community you serve.  They will act as problem solvers and guides helping underserved youth and their families overcome their perceived barriers through establishing trust, communication, and relationship building while liaising with other providers to assists in identifying appropriate referrals and next steps.

If you haven’t already met our Family Navigators Lisa LaRocque and Daniel Nehmetallah, they will be connecting through community outreach meeting our children, youth and their families where they are, in trusted locations familiar to them. If you would like to have Lisa and/or Daniel visit your agency, please call RCC at 519-257-5437 (KIDS) or Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services at 519-258-0484 during hours of operation.

Together, we continue to make progress towards a more connected, accessible, inclusive and equitable Child and Youth Mental Health System in Windsor Essex and recognize the increased need to make a difference across the lifespan in the lives of our community’s young people by not only intervening early but also in trusted and understood environments.  By means of establishing this trust, building relationships and forming connections, our teams are excited and honoured to work with our partner agencies, understanding the unique needs, values, beliefs and traditions of your community directly by your community.
