Addiction and Mental Health - Child and Adolescent - Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic

The Stollery Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic is a team of mental health professionals that support families with children and youth experiencing moderate to severe mental health problems and don't have access to child psychiatry in the community. The clinic also aims to build diagnostic and treatment capacity for community pediatricians.

The Stollery Outpatient Psychiatry Clinic offers secondary level psychiatric services - including:

  • interim multidisciplinary case management including psychiatric assessment, medication optimization and diagnostic clarification
  • system navigation
  • connection to appropriate community services

Services are provided to children and youth with moderate to severe mental health problems and their families.

Length of psychiatric involvement is based on the individual needs of the family, but will typically be between 6-12 months.

While attending the clinic, the Clinic Nurse is the primary point of contact for the families as well as community service providers.

When the goal of the referral has been met, the care will be transferred to their primary care physician for ongoing management; treatment recommendations will be provided.

Furthermore, to build capacity in primary care settings, the clinic offers community pediatricians an indirect, telephone consultation with a child psychiatrist to discuss challenging cases, with the possibility of a patient appointment afterwards if required.
