Youthdale provides compassionate care for those who need it most.

Youthdale is a non-profit, charitable community agency funded by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Youthdale is managed by a central administration and overseen by a public Board of Directors (click here for Youthdale Board Member bios).

Youthdale's clinical services include outpatient consultation, residential treatment, and psychiatric crisis response.

Youthdale’s "continuum of treatment" provides integrated mental health services to children aged 6 to 18 and their families, simplifying access and allowing families to focus on their children's well-being. Youthdale's mandate also includes research into new approaches for helping troubled youth and their families.

Youthdale helps 5,000 children and their families with mental health issues each year.

We serve all children and families, regardless of race, creed, ethnic origin or financial circumstances. Wherever possible, we adapt our treatment environment to support a child's religion, heritage, and cultural identity.

Though many of the children and families who come to us face complex challenges, they also bring their strengths and the capacity for growth and change. Our goal is to help each individual realize their full potential as a self-sufficient and contributing member of their family and society.
