Our mission is to optimise youth development and family life. Caribbean Tots to Teens was launched in 2008 by Dr. Carolyn Jackson out of her recognition of the need for a family-oriented service to provide competent, compassionate care in the fields allied to medicine including mental health, psychology and nutrition.
Over the years, the team has grown from two to an integrated interventional group of more than ten allied healthcare professional associates. Today, Caribbean Tots to Teens provides effective, customized, therapeutic solutions to families, churches, schools, parent-teacher groups, medical practitioners throughout Jamaica and beyond.
We are open to children from newborn to adolescents and young adults of age 21 years.
