The Bridge Youth & Family Services Society offers counselling to individuals and families referred by MCFD. Immediate challenges that families are facing are addressed collaboratively within a safe and supportive counselling milieu. We offer children, youth and families opportunities to enhance their skills through education, relationship building and connection to community resources. Counsellors are available to work within the family’s home, in the community or at the Bridge, depending on the family’s request.

The position assists families in identifying and understanding how mental health issues and substance use may be impacting the safety of children. The Family Intervention Specialist is housed at MCFD Intake and Investigation and referrals to the program are received through that office
