CAMHS provides its many services at several sites across Haldimand and Norfolk County. CAMHS is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care through Ontario Health West. CAMHS provides mental health services for individuals sixteen-years of age and older and addiction services, across the lifespan.
