REdefining excellence

Thursday, June 28, 2018Heather Ennis

The Centre is embarking on a bold new strategy to channel the momentum for change in child and youth mental health into transformational initiatives that will improve service access, experience and outcomes across the province. It's the kind of transformation children, youth and families can feel.

Together with our partners, the Centre will set the standard for child and youth mental health services and stand up for an evidence-informed system that makes a real difference for people across Ontario.


Set standards

The Centre will develop and publish standards for child and youth mental health services in Ontario.

Drive change

The Centre will use evidence and data to inform forthright conversations about organizational and system performance.

Grow evidence

The Centre will close knowledge gaps by supporting practical innovation and evaluation.

Integrate data

The Centre will collaborate with partners to build an integrated data strategy for child and youth mental health.

Build our team

The Centre will adopt an organizational structure that will enable us to deliver excellence while continually tapping in to external expertise.

Broaden our impact

Children, youth and families don’t exist in one system, so neither will we. The Centre will diversify our approach to include all organizations that provide child and youth mental health services.

Let's stay connected. Sign up for Field Notes to hear about updates, opportunities, events and resources.
