Kids Can’t Wait

Mental health care for Ontario children and youth face a series of challenges including program cuts due to chronic under funding; skyrocketing hospitalization rates; and, long waiting lists for treatment that continue to grow.

As many as 5 out of 6 kids with mental health issues don’t get the treatment they need.

Let’s make Ontario a better place for families by prioritizing child and youth mental health.
