Now more than ever, there is a need to support new and emerging leaders who are prepared to initiate, implement and sustain the innovation required to meet the changing needs of Ontario's children, youth and families. The Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health is pleased to host a panel discussion with four recognized leaders from the field. Together they'll reflect on their own leadership journeys and share stories and insights to inspire new leaders. The discussion will be followed by a question and answer session and an opportunity to network. For additional details, please contact Tammy Copp at or at 613-737-2297 ext. 3441.

Learning objectives

  1. Support emerging leaders in the field of child and youth mental health

Marg Cox biography

Marg Cox is a self-professed country bumpkin who enjoys her own humour. She lives, works and plays in beautiful Haliburton County. She loves the outdoors and good music, as long as it’s ABC (anything but country). Marg has worked in leadership positions most of her long career. She considers herself fortunate to be buoyed in her life by great family, friends and colleagues. Her official title is Executive Director of Point in Time Centre for Children, Youth and Parents and the line in her job description, other duties as required, has given new meaning to variety.

Raymond Lemay biography

Raymond Lemay is the former executive director (ED) of a mental health/child welfare multiservice agency Valoris. He was involved in the Ontario adaptation and implementation of the Looking After Children approach for children and youth in the care of Children’s Aid Societies. Raymond has published three books and a few dozen articles. He is keenly interested in leadership issues, organizational excellence and more recently in leadership development and succession planning. The recent appointment of his successor is the culmination of a planning process that began in 2006. Fun fact: in 1976, Raymond recorded 130 songs for les Scouts du Canada and they sold thousands of copies on cassette and later on CD. He is also the proud grandfather of two brilliant granddaughters Marika and Lucie.

Ian Manion biography

Data Geek. Inspired clinician. Undercover introvert. Dad x 5. Ian leads the Centre with vision, compassion and a healthy dose of corny humour. When he's not working, he's playing basetball or engaged in a lifelong study to prove that humans can, in fact, live on tea alone. He is the Executive Director for the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health (the Centre). He is a clinical psychology professor at the University of Ottawa, the Inaugural Chair of the National Infant, Child and Youth Mental Health Consortium and the Prinicipal Lead for the National School-Based Mental Health and Substance Use Consortium. He is a co-founder of Youth Net / Reseau Ado, a nationally recognized mental health promotion program.

Lydia Sai-Chew biography


Words that guide her: Don’t trust anyone who doesn’t eat dessert. But, realizing that this is not particularly relevant to leadership development, Lydia also offers: Embrace your inner keener. Both of these are concepts Lydia lives by. A social worker by training, she has relied heavily on her many years of experience in children’s mental health to help her learn her new current role as agency leader. In her personal life Lydia works diligently to bake back the love of her adolescent children.
