Art Therapy In Adolescent Medicine

The teen years are full of changes: physical, psychological and emotional. Adolescent patients at SickKids face many stressors that may impact their development.

Art-making, with a trained art therapist, can help in the development of a strong sense of self. It is an effective tool for the expression of confusing thoughts and feelings.

We offer art therapy to teen patients who are dealing with substance abuse and other risky behaviors. The therapy is offered on an outpatient basis through the Substance Abuse Program in the Division of Adolescent Medicine. A doctor’s referral is not required. 

Please contact our Intake Coordinator in the Substance Abuse Program at 416-813-5097.
