Serving Children, Youth and Their Families
Lynwood Charlton Centre is a publicly funded charitable organization in the City of Hamilton.
We provide a spectrum of innovative and evidence-informed, mental health services. These include residential, day treatment, and school, home, and community-based services for children, youth and their families.
The Centre is funded and licensed by the Ministry for Children and Youth Services and accredited by the Canadian Centre for Accreditation.
Moving on Mental Health
Lynwood Charlton Centre is the Lead Agency for the Hamilton service area for Moving on Mental Health. This is a Ministry initiated plan to transform the experiences of children, youth and families dealing with mental health issues, and strengthen the community-based system for delivering mental health services to them.
Through our Lead Agency role, we are responsible for leading and facilitating system reform in Hamilton.
To do this, we work collaboratively with other child and youth mental health service providers, other affiliated community partners including our child welfare, health, and school board partners, and parents and youth engaged in our services.
