We invest in kids’ mental health by working with service providers to build capacity.
More than ever, kids are reaching out for support. Demand is increasing and mental health service providers are struggling to keep up. Kids and their families are trapped on waitlists – unable to get the help they desperately need. We’re working to change that.
We don’t cut blank cheques to our beneficiaries. Instead, we work with them to identify opportunities to build capacity and reduce waitlists. Ultimately, we help more kids access the care they need.
People are getting smarter and we’re solving problems to make society better off. When we think about the mental health system in Canada, it’s so easy to talk about the headline grabbing issues such as “an Ottawa family waits a year for mental health services” or “families struggle to navigate mental health services”. However, we need to think about the other side of the coin.
