WestView Primary Care Network Youth Mental Health Clinics
The WestView Primary Care Network operates the Youth Mental Health Clinic (YMHC), a specialty clinic for youth aged 11 to 24 who live in the Tri-Region. This Clinic offers wrap-around mental health services for youth aged 11 to 24 who live in the Tri-Region, through a multidisciplinary team consisting of Physicians, Registered Social Workers, a Behavioral Health Consultant, Youth Therapists, and Community Connectors. The main focus of the clinic is diagnosing and managing ADHD, anxiety, and depression.
The Youth Mental Health Clinics (YMHC) are located within a community-located clinic and within select school-located clinics.
Community-located Youth Mental Health Clinic (YMHC)
The primary Youth Mental Health Clinic (YMHC) operates year-round out of the WestView Primary Care Network at the Queen Street Medical Facility in Spruce Grove. The YMHC offers both referral-based appointments and walk-ins at the community-located Queen Street YMHC site.
More information regarding how parents/guardians and/or youth can independently access services within this community-located clinic can be found on the YMHC website.
School-located Youth Mental Health Clinics (YMHC)
Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, Parkland School Division partnered with WestView Primary Care Network (PCN) to expand the Youth Mental Health Clinic locations by leasing space to the PCN, during the school year, at the following school sites:
- Memorial Composite High School
- Spruce Grove Composite High School
- Connections For Learning - Outreach Sites
As these clinics are located within the schools, in order for students to be seen at these school-located YMHC sites, the youth must be enrolled at that school AND
- have parent/guardian consent (if under the age of 18) OR
- be over the age of 18 OR
- Have been deemed an Independent Student by the Division, in accordance with the Education Act.
This Clinic offers wrap-around mental health services for youth enrolled at these three school sites through a multidisciplinary team consisting of a Physician and a Registered Social Worker. Upon intake other Clinic services may also be recommended within the community, including access to a Behavioral Health Consultant, Youth Therapists, and Community Connectors.
