Tele-Mental Health

Tele-Mental Health

We support community service providers by developing strong partnerships and facilitating timely access to specialized mental health consultations for children and youth.

The Tele-Mental Health service is a "consultation based model" with access to specialized mental health consults provided by three Hubs: The Hospital for Sick Children, The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Child and Parent Resource Institute. These mental health consultations use existing videoconferencing technology. Weechi-it-te-win's Service Area (Area 6) has seen a consistent increase in the number of OTN Videoconferencing Sites.

All publicly funded health professionals within Area 6 (see map below), who work with children and youth can refer to the Tele-Mental Health Program including professionals who work in Child and Youth Mental Health Agencies, School Boards, Hospital Out-Patient Programs, Family Health Teams, Health Access Centres, Friendship Centres, Youth Justice, Nursing Stations, and any other community based agencies that provide child and youth mental health services.
