The Ontario Coalition for Children and Youth Mental Health unites education, mental health, community and health sectors in a movement to promote the priority of social and emotional well-being as a part of healthy child development in Ontario and to make it a priority that drives integrated public policy in the province.
An integrated approach that involves collaboration across all the sectors that serve children and youth is essential. The Coalition aims to be a catalyst for province-wide change, to be a model for how we can work differently and effectively together to improve, in a positive and sustained way, supports and services for children and youth wherever they live in Ontario.
The Coalition recognizes that no one group or organization can do this work alone. It is a shared responsibility that will take a concerted and collaborative effort to bring this pervasive health issue out of the shadows.
