 Non-Violent Crisis Intervention Training

IDM Youth Services proudly implements the Mandt method of Non-Violent Crisis Intervention Training and has certified trainees on staff to help when needed.

Complex Care Intervention

IDM Youth Services is thankful to be a part of the Complex Care and Intervention (CCI) Project. This Province-wide initiative was created by Dr. Chuck Geddes and Dr. Kirk Austin. The project focuses on using a sensitive, and yet focused, trauma-focused intervention planning tool for children and youth.

Our Funders

We work with a variety of funders to allow us to serve the youth in our care, including the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD), Surrounded by Cedar – Child & Family Services, Island Health, and Community Living British Columbia (CLBC). These funders let us care for the youth we serve in the personalized ways they need.
