Our Values

DIGNITY

We believe that children and youth with mental health challenges have the right to be respected, supported and included in schools and communities.

AVAILABILITY

We believe that children and youth have the right to mental health treatment and support services that are timely, effective and coordinated.

INVESTMENT IN POTENTIAL

We believe that meeting the mental health needs of children and youth requires significant financial and professional  investment that is sustained throughout the young person’s schooling. Young people with mental health issues have much to contribute to society. It is our responsibility to allow that contribution to flourish.

ENGAGEMENT

We believe that children and youth benefit from close collaboration and shared responsibility among service providers, families, communities, educators, other professionals and government.

COORDINATION

We believe that educational and healthcare supports must be coordinated to support the mental health needs of young people.

ACCOUNTABILITY

We believe that there should be accountability for the responses of societal systems and the people within the systems to the mental health needs of young people.
