Supporting mental health in children and adolescents

The Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Dalhousie University is located at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia. There are approximately 17 academic child and adolescent psychiatrists with a wealth of experience and expertise in patient care, education, research and advocacy.

Our doctors work as part of the IWK Mental Health and Addictions Program (MHAP), which provides a full range of mental health and psychiatric treatment services for children, adolescents and their families, and is the only mental health program in the Halifax district.

Psychiatric services are integrated within the IWK Mental Health and Addictions Program services as part of an interdisciplinary treatment team including: community mental health clinics, specific care clinics, adolescent and child intensive services, addictions services, forensics services, emergency psychiatry service and an acute inpatient psychiatry unit.
