Mental health resources at home

Mental health resources for children and youth are helping Island families from the comfort of their own homes. The online programming and telehealth services of the Strongest Families partnership have no wait times and fit families’ schedules, eliminating the need to travel, take time off work or school, or change normal routines. Over the past year, they have helped more than 130 families with children and youth ages 3 to 17 who experience behaviour, anxiety, and/or nighttime bedwetting problems. Families can be referred to the Strongest Families programs through their primary care provider or community mental health services by calling 1-866-833-5443. There are currently three programs offered: Behaviour program (for ages 3 to 12); Anxiety program (for ages 6 to 17); Nighttime bedwetting (for ages 5 to 12). Participants receive written materials and skill-demonstration videos (via handbooks or delivered by smart-website technology) as well as weekly telephone support from a coach. On PEI, the program represents an investment of $100,000 annually, funded from within Health PEI’s Mental Health and Addictions division. www.healthpei.ca/mentalhealthwww.strongestfamilies.com
