The return of innovation initiatives

Monday, January 8, 2018Heather Ennis

The Centre's Innovation Initiatives are designed to help Ontario's child and youth mental health changemakers turn their bold ideas into potential solutions for some of our sector's trickiest challenges. These grants provide up to $50,000 to try new things, collaborate in non-traditional ways, test promising ideas and stretch the boundaries of existing evidence to improve the quality and accessibility of child and youth mental health services in Ontario.

Moving on Mental Health identifies priorities for the system, and successful Innovation Initiatives will seek to raise the bar in one or more of them:

  • Build clear pathways in and out of community-based child and youth mental health services
  • Increase integration and collaboration among diverse community partners (e.g. health, education)
  • Establish consistent and evidence-informed clinical service standards and guidelines
  • Ensure timely, appropriate and accessible services for children, youth and families

Submission deadline: February 28, 2018
