The Child and Adolescent Treatment Centre celebrated 20 years of caring, compassionate care for youth in our community on November 9, 2018 with a celebration at the Centre with past and present staff, partners, and friends.
CATC would like to thank all who attended and sent along their well wishes. CATC has adapted over the years to the changing landscape of child and youth mental health, as well as the needs of the community, but what has remained unchanged is the passion and care that the staff at the Centre have delivered over the past 20 years. Those who attended the celebration were able to reflect on the journey of our service from inception to current state.
CATC provides many services out of its facility location at 1240 10th Street in Brandon. Some of those include the Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), which also operates a 24-hour Crisis Line. This 10-bed crisis and treatment unit provides 24-hour. care to clients in crisis from PMH and surrounding areas. Education for the clients receiving services on the CSU is also offered while they are at CATC.

CATC provides a full range of community based services including psychiatry, psychology, community mental health counselling, occupational therapy, and group wellness/treatment programming
