The success of this project relied on the participation and openness of people who’ve had experience with the child and youth mental health service system. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the youth and families who so generously gave their time and shared parts of their stories so openly, in a courageous effort to improve this system, largely for the benefit of others. The strength and love that was observed throughout this engagement process was incredibly moving, and we wish continued hope, strength, and support to the youth and families that participated.
We would also like to thank the many community partners who contributed to this project. Although CMHA WWD will continue to act as a facilitator within the child and youth mental health system in Wellington Dufferin, its success relies on ongoing collaboration with its community partners. We are extremely grateful for their continued enthusiasm and involvement.
