At your first appointment we will ask a lot of questions and have you fill out some rating scales. We want to see what has been happening, what has helped in the past and what hasn't. You will meet one of our doctors or nurse practitioner, our child therapist and your school counsellor or teacher may be here as well.
Our Mental Health Navigator is Alena.
Our nurse practitioner and doctors are: Chantal Vallee NP, Dr van Deventer, Dr Barnard, Dr Cadrin & Dr Yang.
Our child therapists are Kathy & Samantha.
We can see kids aged 6 - 17 who have their family doctor at the Bonnyville Medical Clinic or use the Bonnyville Medical Clinic for the medical care.

We use different rating scales, some for parents, some for kids, some for teachers. These help us to see what kinds of thoughts, feelings and behaviours you have been noticing.
Scroll down to view these rating scales.
At your other appointments we will check to see if what we tried is working or not. You may have to fill out more rating scales. We will see you as many times as we need until you and your parents feel like things are going well.
Here are some of the rating scales we use.
We may ask you to print them off and bring them with you to your next appointment.
