Child & Youth Mental Health

Support for the children and youth of our community.

At Intersect Youth and Family Services, our counsellors and team provide a number of services to help the children and youth in Prince George and our surrounding communities. Please read further to discover how we could be a fit for you and your family.

One on One Therapy

Different situations call for different needs.

Sometimes all it takes is a little time and effort, and we can help mitigate short-term concerns. Other times, however, extended help is required. To broaden our ability to help, we offer both long- and short-term counselling. Concerns may require more time to tackle, so long-term counselling may be needed.

Short-term counselling focuses on identifying strengths within the family unit to help them face their concerns as they come up. We help families develop goals for therapy and support the individual and their family to work towards a change.

If the concern is bigger than the family is comfortable with or able to deal with, we are able to continue counselling to help them further.

Caregiver Support – Parents & Caregivers

Emotion Focused Family Therapy is the central therapeutic model we use to support families. We encourage all caregivers to watch the free parenting video series on this site.

School Program

A dynamic school program that provides educational services for youth in grade 8 to 12.

This service is only available to youth who are currently receiving counseling through Intersect and are not currently enrolled in other School District programs. The United Way of Northern United Way and Gaming and Policy Enforcement Branch currently support the Intersect Youth Care Worker position. This program relies on community donations so we can provide graduation ceremonies for those that complete all the required school work and other special events.

Your donations have a direct impact on the youth, children and families of northern BC.
