The best mental health and well-being for every child, youth and family.


We drive high-quality child and youth mental health service delivery for Ontario's children, youth and families by mobilizing knowledge and setting the bar for excellence.

What we do

Our work is anchored by two core goals: to mobilize knowledge and improve quality across Ontario's child and youth mental health sector. Curious about specific projects or aspects of our work? Check out our projects.

Mobilize knowledge

We work to identify our sector's most pressing knowledge gaps and close them with the best available evidence. We make sure that knowledge is accessible, understandable and useful for everyone working to improve mental health outcomes for the province's children, young people and families.

Improve quality

Using proven methodologies, we coach agencies to make meaningful changes that systematically improve the quality and accessibility of child and youth mental health services in Ontario. Working closely with young people, families, service providers and decision makers, we help ensure that our sector is equipped with the information and know-how required to deliver high-quality services and to pursue continuous quality improvement.
