With the increasing demand for services, children’s mental health agencies across Canada are struggling to keep up. Here are a few trends in mental health and mental health service delivery we’ve encountered…
More Complex Needs – The demand on the system to adapt to the needs of more diverse populations is growing.
Increased Demand, No Money – As a result of great advocacy and reduced stigma, more people are accessing services. Funding is not proportional.
Digital Services – New digital solutions present incredible opportunities. Risk, uncertainty and skillset underinvestment are slowing adoption.
Accessing Services – Barriers such as geography and work obligations prevent a parent from getting their child to care.
