Resources and tools

Child and youth mental health agencies across Ontario have been working hard to continue to provide services in the face of unprecedented challenges, evolving needs and increasing demand. As the pandemic forced a rapid transition to virtual care, we set to work to develop and compile resources to support the delivery of e-mental health services — and the teams who provide them. And we’re not done yet.

Research project

It was clear from the outset that provincial and federal measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 would have a significant impact on the daily lives of Ontario’s children, youth and families. But we want to better understand how the pandemic has impacted them. We want to know how we — and others in our sector — can better support them during and after the crisis.

Together with the CHEO Research Institute, we launched a research project to study how young people are feeling about COVID-19, how they’re coping, what types of mental health services or supports they’re already accessing and, importantly, which services or supports they’d like to access in the future.

The study consists of two surveys: one for young people ages 12 to 25 and one for parents and caregivers of children and young people ages 4 to 25.
