Kids Can’t Wait for Mental Health Care

Kids Can’t Wait for Mental Health Care

Join us in making Ontario the #1 jurisdiction in Canada for access to kids’ mental health services

We are calling on Ontario political parties to take the pledge

Ontario’s next government must move quickly and make significant investments to remove the systemic barriers that prevent children from getting the mental health supports when and where they need it. 

Invest $300M over the next 5 years into child and youth mental health

Cut wait times to 30 days

Build more capacity in the community so kids don’t end up in emergency rooms

Develop a highly qualified and sustainable workforce of children’s mental health professionals
