7-7teen - Family Mental Health Program

   

Highland Primary Care Network (HPCN) is pleased to offer a family centered youth mental health program.

Do you have a youth age 7-17 who is struggling with feelings of sadness, worry, tiredness, forgetfulness, nervousness, has trouble concentrating or paying attention, or general behaviour concerns? Then, we encourage you to learn more about becoming a part of this family based mental health program. Using a combination of group, individual and family appointments, the goals of the program are to help participants:

    • Realize they are not alone
    • Learn about signs, symptoms and related challenges associated with anxiety, depression, attention or behavioural concerns
    • Learn ways to improve quality of life
    • Get support from others who might be going through some of the same things
    • Learn tools and techniques to reduce, manage and cope with symptoms
    • Understand what the youth is going through and learn effective ways to support them
    • Navigate resources
    • Maintain and strengthen communication to family doctors to support the long-term treatment plan for youth and family


How do you get into the program?

Please ask your family Doctor if you think this program might help and they will arrange for an appointment with a health care provider in their office (medical home). The health care provider will work with you, your child and your family doctor and develop a plan of care. This plan of care could include ongoing support in your medical home, a referral to the 7 to 7teen Program or to other resources.
