About Us | Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Compassion and caring is at the core of the services we provide. We believe that children, youth, families and staff are doing the best they can with the skills they have and we work together to make things better.

Our Program

The McMaster Children’s Hospital Child and Youth Mental Health Program (CYMHP) offers a range of intensive and time limited services for children, youth and families dealing with mental health concerns.

Our care is family-centred. This means that you and your family are an important part of the health care team.

We will

  • work together to plan your care
  • help you make decisions and take part in your care
  • give you information and support
  • invite you to discuss your care with us and ask any questions you may have 

We look forward to working with you and your family.
