What happens at Children's Mental Health Intake?


Regional Intake coordinates referrals to CASA and all other major public providers of children's mental health treatment services in the Edmonton Capital Region.

  • Following the screening, referrals are sent to various children's and adolescent's mental health providers, including CASA, based on the unique conditions of each child, including where they live, the child's age, the presenting concern and any history of treatment.

  • Referrals sent to CASA by CYF Mental Health Intake are distributed to the appropriate CASA program.
