Ontario is investing in a Comprehensive Mental Health and Addictions Strategy that puts kids first.

As many as 50,000 kids and their families will benefit from the significant investments that started last year and will grow to $257 million over the next few years.

New services and supports will focus on three key areas:

  • fast access to high-quality services
  • early identification and support
  • helping vulnerable kids with unique needs.
 

Moving on Mental Health: A System That Makes Sense For Children And Youth

Ontario is launching a three-year action plan, Moving on Mental Health, to deliver a coordinated, responsive system for children, youth and their families. The plan will result in a system where parents will know where to go for help and have access to services locally, regionally and provincially.
