Our U12 program is an intensive, live-in mental health program for children (6-12) and their families.
The program is designed to provide a safe environment for behaviourally at-risk children who are unable to be managed in community outpatient, less-intensive settings. In addition, the program offers trauma-informed, family-centred and evidence-based treatment. The average length of stay is 6-9 months.
The U12 program provides:
- 24-hour supervision and milieu treatment
- 24-hour crisis support for children on site and their families in the community
- Individual and family therapeutic services specifically tailored to the needs of the child and family
- A comprehensive functional assessment

- Nursing services and monitoring of health issues
- Access to psychiatric care and medication management review
