Vanier Children’s Services
Vanier Children's Mental Wellness - Response to COVID-19 The health and well-being of staff, children, and families is our key priority. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented preventative measures and continue to monitor and follow directions from our local Public Health Unit daily. To support social distancing, our office will be closed to visitors and we will not be providing face to face sessions at this time. Alternatively, families who are currently receiving community services will be supported through phone and video conferencing contacts with our staff. All face to face drop-in clinics (Talk-in, PAIRs, and INsite) have been cancelled until further notice. However, we are available to offer virtual sessions to families available through phone or video conferencing. If you would like to schedule a virtual session with a therapist or you need immediate help, please contact our Crisis and Intake Team (CIT) at 519-433-0334 to schedule a session. We aim to continue supporting children and families during this difficult time. We Are Here to Help - We appreciate that this is a constantly changing landscape for everyone and we will continue to update you as new information becomes available.
