About Pathstone Mental Health
Pathstone Mental Health has been providing high quality health care to children in Niagara for over 50 years. Our services, start at the beginning of their life and continue until they turn 18. Because we know that 70% of all mental health issues stem from childhood, we need to ensure Pathstone has the tools to nurture kids who are struggling and support the families who are caring for them. Being there for Niagara’s children today puts them on a better path for tomorrow.
Over the past two years, we opened nine children’s mental health walk-in clinics across the Niagara Region funded strictly by donors. In all, these clinics offer more than 400 hours of mental health support at no cost for any child, youth, and family who needs to lean on us. In just 24 months, these clinics have become a lifeline for many, has shortened our wait list significantly, and have minimized barriers to getting mental health service when children are fresh in their feelings. Our walk-in clinics have seen close to 1,400 kids in the last 12 months alone, and over that same time span, Pathstone Mental Health cared for over 7,000 clients. This is a number that continues to increase significantly each year.
