Mood & Anxiety Service

Children may show anxiety or mood problems in many ways. We help the child, youth and their family better understand the problem after assessment. We also recommend treatment when appropriate. In some cases, we are able to offer time-limited treatment.

An anxious child may have symptoms such as:

  • fear of something specific, avoiding certain situations or worrying too much
  • having physical signs of fear, such as a very fast heartbeat or trouble breathing

A depressed child may:

  • withdraw from friends and family
  • lose interest in usual activities
  • have trouble eating or sleeping
  • express feelings of guilt or self-criticism
  • question the value of life

Bipolar disorder may present with symptoms of depression or mania, such as grandiose thinking, decreased need for sleep, or extreme talkativeness.


Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
