Youth Day Program

Who Do We Serve?

We provide services to youth between the ages 12 to 18 years, who experience serious and persistent mental health and substance use concerns and are not able to function in a mainstream education program.

The Day program is voluntary and, ideally, it is a short term assessment and intervention program to help the youth reintegrate into an appropriate community program such as a regular school or other educational experience.  The program generally follows the public school calendar and most youth stay for one or two semesters, depending on their needs.

Services Offered

The Day Program provides a combination of multidisciplinary services incorporating educational learning goals, social and life skill development, recreation assessment and therapy.  This program is designed to address the individual needs of the youth in the context of their family or other living situation.  Most weeks during the school year, the program runs from 9:00 - 3:15 pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.  Wednesdays are an administrative day when we meet with families and other stakeholders to support the care plan for individual students and sustain other areas of the program. 

For each student, we begin with a multidisciplinary assessment of their needs – e.g. usually moderate to severe mental health and some substance use issues - and then develop an intervention strategy and plan of care to meet those needs.  The core focus of the program is to support the students and their families or caregivers to develop functional daily living skills.

Our goal is to optimize adolescent mental health through a multi-disciplinary approach that includes a variety of individual and group interventions including:  ongoing assessment, cognitive behavioural therapy, emotional regulation skill building, creative arts, problem solving, academic support, recreation, social skills and community involvement.

Our long term goals for the youth who attend the Day Program are: to encourage participation in positive leisure activities, increase pro-social life skills, decrease unhealthy behaviours and relapses, increase productivity, make healthy choices and improve social judgement.

Service Providers

Our core team consists of a variety of professional disciplines including:

    Registered Nurses
  • Recreational Therapists
  • Teacher
  • Educational Assistant
  • Social Support Worker
  • Occupational Therapist 

Each of these professionals work in the clinical space on a daily basis.  Additionally, as part of the service, we incorporate other stakeholders who may also provide support to the student and their family outside of the Day Program – e.g.  mental health counselor, psychologist, social workers, psychologist, school administrators and resource professionals, dietitian, speech and language pathologist, police.

How to Access Services

Day Program is a time limited and transitional service, our model of care focuses on supporting the client and their caregivers to learn skills, make positive change and return to more functional lives in the community.  As such, the Day Program accepts referrals from mental health professionals who are actively working with the client and their caregivers on an ongoing basis.  If the client is not currently working with a mental health professional, developing a service relationship is the beginning of the process.   If you would like to initiate the referral process call Mental Health and Addictions Services Child and Youth Intake at 306-655-7777.  Otherwise, mental health professionals already working with clients can initiate the referral process with the Day Program coordinator at 306-655-4911.
