Mental Health Resources

Links and resources for behavioural and mental health

While we do cover a lot of issues and concerns here at Quinte Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, there are some areas that we cannot address. A couple of these areas are mental health and behavioral issues. Still, we recognize that these types of issues are still prevalent in kids and adolescents and that, sometimes, finding the right help and resources isn’t easy. With this in mind, we’ve compiled this list of local organizations and professionals as well as related resource from some of our favourite trusted sources.

This list is by-no means comprehensive and will continue to grow over time. Be sure to check back regularly!
