The Child and Parent Resource Institute (CPRI) provides services to children and youth from 0 - 18 years of age with complex mental health and/or developmental challenges (and their families) on a short term residential and community basis. CPRI is 100% funded by the Ontario Ministry of Children and Youth Services and its services are offered at no charge.
CPRI provides highly specialized services including assessment, consultation, treatment, research and education. They also provide programs and clinics for children and youth, their families and caregivers. In addition to clinical services, CPRI also provides a number of resources - such as the Library/Family Resource Centre - to CPRI's families, caregivers and staff, as well as to the entire community.
The goal of CPRI's Research and Education program is to initiate, cultivate, undertake and disseminate research that enhances understanding and works towards ensuring programs at CPRI are evidence-based, effective and efficient. The program also provides learning opportunities for clinical student placements. CPRI is renowned as an international leader in Biochemical Genetics, providing diagnostic laboratory tests, therapeutic monitoring and consultations.
CPRI's 17 county catchment area includes the counties of Bruce, Grey, Huron, Perth, Waterloo, Wellington, Hamilton-Wentworth, Brant, Oxford, Middlesex, Lambton, Essex, Kent, Elgin, Haldimand-Norfolk and the Niagara Region.
