Mental Health and Addictions Health Hub for Children and Youth
The overall goal of the Hub is to increase access to safe, efficient, effective, timely and equitable integrated mental health and addictions services for children, youth and families living in North Grenville.
Locally, our children, families and youth face similar barriers as others across the province. The system can be difficult to navigate and access to supports and services can be challenging. Hub partners recognize that no single organization or sector encompasses every part of the system of care and that our community can have the most impact when we work more intentionally together in cooperative, collaborative and integrative ways.
The new Walk-In Clinic and the Systems Navigator are two initiatives that the Collaborative Hub has recently introduced to increase access to local mental health and addiction services and provide support to families navigating the system.
For children and youth (0-18) and families looking to work towards a solution to a problem or concern. Clinic provides behavioural, emotional and/or other mental health concerns in a collaborative, strengths based way (Children’s Mental Health of Leeds and Grenville )
- Systems Navigator
A dedicated individual whose role is to provide a central point of contact for youth and families seeking mental health and addiction services/supports. The Navigator helps connect people to the right services and provides support to those who are “waiting for services” (Connect Youth).
