Based on a interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) model, the program's goal aim to help Francophones aged 16 to 24 make the transition from youth mental health services to adult services.
The content of the group is tailored to the diagnoses, but more importantly to the goals of the participants. We also offer a referral service throughout the program, to help facilitate treatment for each participant's needs.
Our closed group meets on a weekly basis for 12 weeks.
The CAJAR team consists of a psychiatrist, a social worker and a psychotherapist. To allow someone to access this group, a health care professional must complete a referral form. The request will be assessed by our central intake staff.
Prior to starting the group, a participant should expect to meet with the psychotherapist or social worker assigned to the group for a minimum of two individual sessions to complete the assessment and orientation to the group.
This program is a partnership between Montfort and the Young Adult Mental Health Transition Service of CHEO.
