Who can be referred to CPRI?

The Child and Parent Resource Institute (CPRI) is directly operated by the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.

Through collaboration with community partners, CPRI provides trauma-informed and highly specialized services for children and youth of Ontario (age 0-18) who experience complex and often co-morbid combinations of mental health and developmental challenges where:

  • These difficulties significantly impact functioning in multiple areas such as home, school and community and;
  • There has not been a desired response to first and second line community interventions due to comorbidities, chronicity, unsuccessful best practice/evidence-informed treatment, or other significant diagnostic factors.
