Multisystemic Therapy

Mental Health Multisystemic Therapy is a community-based program for at-risk young people aged 12 to 16 years.

CAHS Mental Health professionals work in the young person's home, with a young person's parents and caregivers, their school and other groups concerned about the child's behaviour. Our goal is to help families develop the skills needed to manage their challenges so that the young person has a brighter, healthier future.
