Thank you for visiting my webpage.

My name is Dr. Kenny Handelman and I am a Psychiatrist. I work in a hospital based practice affiliated with the Oakville Trafalgar Hospital – Halton Healthcare services.

I have specialized in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and I’m an expert in ADD and ADHD.

I am glad that you found this page, as it means that you may be coming to see me in my office, or you are searching for more information on children’s mental health.

Please use the links on the side of the page to browse through the site, and to find the information which will help you most. This site is undergoing development, so please have some patience.

If you are familiar at all with children’s mental health, then you are aware that there is a tremendous shortage of services available to children, teens and their families – not only in Halton region, but across Ontario and Canada. Hopefully this site can prepare you for a visit with me (if you are referred by a doctor – see ‘How to see Dr. Handelman’), or point you in the right direction, even if our paths don’t cross.

A brief background about myself: I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I teach for the University of Western Ontario, and am an Adjunct Professor of Psychiatry for them.

Thank you for visiting this site, and I wish you well.


Dr. Kenny Handelman, MD FRCP(C) DABPN
