Child and youth mental health impact grants: COVID-19 response

Our sector had to quickly pivot and adapt these last few months to support children, young people and families during these times of uncertainty and physical distancing. You did get your creative juices flowing and you found new ways to service your clients. We’re calling on researchers and innovators who would like to test out big ideas and novel solutions that emerged in response to the pandemic!

We’re looking to fund projects that advance innovative, evidence-based solutions to help us understand the mental health impacts of COVID-19 on children and young people, with a focus on families from vulnerable groups who experience challenges in accessing and receiving high-quality mental health care. Priority will be given to proposals that have potential for scaling within and beyond the province of Ontario.
