The Lead Agency work is done in collaboration with Toronto’s 26 Core Service Providers and 5 Indigenous agencies. This is the largest provincial grouping of service providers that includes agencies that serve the 0 to 6 population and prioritizes extensive, meaningful engagement of youth and families.
We are also focused on building and strengthening relationships with Education, Healthcare, Child Welfare, the Justice System and other sectors and community partners to better meet infant, children, and youth mental health needs.
“Every child and young person deserves support to reach their full potential – and our communities and our province need them to realize that potential. Children and young people deserve a mental health system that delivers services and supports that respond quickly and comprehensively to their needs, as close to home as possible.”
– Former Ministry of Children and Youth Services, Moving on Mental Health Action Plan
