Dear friend of the Centre,

I am pleased to send you the first edition of Field Notes, the new quarterly e-bulletin from the Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health.

We've developed this bulletin to keep you up to date on the Centre’s latest activities. The launch of Field Notes coincides with the introduction of our new logo and name, which we've adopted to reflect the new strategic plan announced by the Centre in October 2010.

Clicking on the links in Field Notes will take you directly to our new website, which has been redesigned to be more user-friendly and to reflect our new corporate look-and-feel.

I hope you find the information presented here both valuable and interesting. Your feedback is always welcome - if you have any questions or comments, please send us an e-mail.

Best regards,
Ian Manion, PhD, CPsych
Executive Director
