Since it was announced in 2018 that Kemptville District Hospital would receive funding towards a Mental Health and Addictions Hub for children and youth, plans have been in the works to bring the much needed services to town.
More than 20 mental health agencies working to improve care for children and youth across Leeds and Grenville have banded together on this project.
The hub was officially launched at KDH on May 11.
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.
