Pathways for Children & Youth

An Overview

Pathways provides services to children from birth to 18 years of age in Frontenac, Lennox & Addington counties. We respond to more than 1,000 referrals each year, and provide services within a goal-focused and client and family-oriented framework.

Some of our children and youth clients have difficulties with behaviour or emotions, while others have experienced mental health problems such as depression, withdrawal, or aggression. Some of our clients have been impacted by family violence, abuse, family distress, trauma, substance abuse, or parent-child conflict.

Pathways has a central intake system that allows direct contact with a staff member who can explain our services and schedule appointments. Our intake counsellors work with families to determine the best services to address each child's individual needs. The case management process allows for continuity of service, and we work with parents to ensure they have the tools to assist their child at home and in the community.

Community Site Services include assessment and consultations, individual, family, and group counselling, as well as parenting programs. Intensive Services include Intensive Child and Family, Early Years, and Nexus (Day Treatment) services. Resource Services include behavioural paediatric, psychiatric, and psychological assessment and consultation services. All of the services can be accessed through Community Site counsellors.
