How To Apply

If a youth has been diagnosed with an FASD or Complex Need, referrals can be made directly to the FYI Program Social Worker.

If the youth has not been diagnosed, referrals can be made to Sunny Hill Hospital’s Assessment Network by the youth’s paediatrician or child psychiatrist. Once the referral for assessment has been made, the family is eligible to access Key Worker Services.

Referrals are accepted from a variety of sources, including self-referrals, professionals and Sunny Hill Hospital Assessment Network.
