Child and Youth Mental Health Counselling

PCN Clinical Counsellors offer a variety of services to youth ages 10-24 years old with mild to moderate mental health needs.

Child and Youth Mental Health Counselling is a short-term service focusing on coping skills, system navigation, and resource linking. Eligible patients can receive up to 10 individual sessions.

When appropriate, parents and caregivers can join sessions — with consideration given to child or youth’s age, comfort level, and preference.

  • Patient is 10 – 24 years old 
  • Patient is not already receiving mental health services 
  • Patient cannot access private services 

Please speak with your Burnaby-based Primary Care Provider to see if you are eligible for this service.
