The Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health and CHEO are announcing that our executive director, Michelle Hurtubise, has resigned to pursue a new career opportunity in a direct care, community-based organization. 

We are grateful to Michelle for her leadership over the past 3 years, particularly stewarding us through a new strategic plan that reinforces our commitment to improving service quality and mobilizing knowledge for Ontario’s community-based child and youth mental health sector.

Over the next while, CHEO will be implementing a recruitment strategy to identify Michelle’s successor, likely to be announced in the Fall. In the interim Dr. Purnima Sundar, who has a long history as a member of the Centre’s leadership team, will be continuing in her role as acting executive director.
