KIDTHINK works with the child’s entire community to best meet their needs.
KIDTHINK provides mental health outreach services for children ages 12 and under and their families with a primary focus on working with parents, educators, pediatricians, coaches, and the community surrounding the child. This approached ensures that the child’s support structures are best equipped to identify and support children going through mental health challenges or with mental illnesses.
Our multi-disciplinary team provides assessment and evidence-based treatment for a variety of social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. Mental health disorders or challenges include, but are not limited to, the following:


Anxiety is among the most commonly diagnosed mental illnesses in children. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported that 7.1% of children aged 3-17 have been diagnosed with anxiety. Anxiety can interfere with a child’s home, school, and social life; making it challenging for them to fully thrive. When addressed early, anxiety is effectively treatable.


Symptoms such as low mood and hopelessness are not exclusively experienced by adults. 3.2% of children aged 3-17 have a depression diagnosis. There is hope because depression in children is treatable. KIDTHINK incorporates the child’s entire community in the care plan to best empower them to thrive.

Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that can result in communication, social, and behavioural challenges. Children with ASD may also repeat actions and have trouble deviating from their daily routines. ASD is often first noticed when the child begins to have difficulty interacting with their peers. If treated early, a child’s development can be significantly improved.


Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) makes it especially challenging for a child to concentrate on tasks and is the most commonly diagnosed mental illness in children. Treatment can help children develop effective strategies to be successful while also aiding parents/caregivers in dealing with the challenges of raising a child with ADHD. Early diagnosis and treatment can result in substantially better outcomes for children and families.

Self-esteem issues

Self-esteem issues in children can cause them to excessively question themselves. They may avoid activities or interactions out of fear that they will be rejected. They may also allow others to treat them poorly and not have the confidence to stand up for themselves. In order to thrive, kids need to have confidence in their abilities. Our clinicians are trained in effectively building these skills.

Learning Challenges

The varied school environments arising as a consequence of COVID-19 have resulted in significant learning loss. This is exacerbated for those with preexisting learning difficulties and disabilities. KIDTHINK assesses children to determine their strengths and weaknesses and develops an intervention plan to help them succeed to the best of their abilities.
