Paediatric Mental Health Inpatient Unit
The Paediatric Mental Health Inpatient Unit provides care to vulnerable children and youth up to 19 years with severe mental health challenges. With close to 300 patients each year and an average length of stay of 6 days, the Unit provides a wide range of treatment approaches, academic programming to ensure a continuous connection to learning, and a common area to allow for social interaction.
In partnership with The Maddie Project, North York General Foundation is embarking on a new priority project to renew the Unit to better serve the needs of patients and their families. The current Unit has not aged well, has had little investment and is not aligned with best practices in creating a healing and therapeutic care environment. We need better space for youth mental health. It’s that simple.
