Mental Health T.O.: Access for Infants, Children, Youth & Families
Mental Health T.O. (MHTO) is Toronto’s central access point for infants, children, youth and their families to mental health and addiction services in their community. Our goal is to help those in need find and get mental health help as efficiently and quickly as possible. MHTO can also connect you to a phone or video counselling session with the Whats’ Up Walk-In network.
If you are a young person, you might call if you:
- Feel anxious or worried
- Feel depressed, sad or angry
- Are being bullied
- Don’t feel yourself…
- Want more information about mental health and addiction services in your community.
If you are a parent/caregiver of an infant or child, you might call if:
- Your infant/child is crying inconsolably; having tantrums; irregular sleep or eating patterns;
- You are worried about your infant/child’s development; feeling overwhelmed and frustrated by parenting; or asking, “is this just a phase?”
- You want more information about mental health and addiction services in your community.
Service providers, doctors, teachers, school social workers, child protection services and any other support service can call MHTO too for more information, but we will need the expressed consent of the person or parent to refer to a service.
