LEADER’S MESSAGE

Looking back on the past year, one thing is clear – the future of child and youth mental health is coming into focus.

The Ministry of Children and Youth Services’ strategic plan, Moving on Mental Health is in full swing with lead agencies gaining stride in their new roles, agency and community partners working more closely together and leaders and decision-makers helping address system-level questions. All of this to ensure children, youth and families get the mental health services they need, when and where they need them most.

We are pleased to share our 2015-16 annual report. It is both a look back at our collective achievements and a look forward at the future that lies ahead.

In it, you’ll read how our work is supporting agencies in strengthening skills to enhance service outcomes, how we continue to share knowledge through consultations, facilitated training and events and how we’re fueling innovative ideas to propel the sector forward.

This was also a year of renewed focus for the Centre with the launch of our refreshed strategic plan: A Shared Vision. This plan is a direct response to the changing needs across the sector. It reinforces our commitment to our mission and vision while outlining three new strategic directions: strengthening skills and knowledge across service areas, providing consistent, evidence-informed approaches at the system level and delivering innovative solutions.

It’s an exciting time both in the child and youth mental health sector and in the evolution of the Centre. As the sector continues to progress, we will also enhance our work, delivering more in-depth support to meet the changing needs of the agencies we serve.

In looking at what is to come, it is important to remember those who have helped pave the way. We would like to acknowledge Dr. Ian Manion, founding executive director who retired earlier this year. Through his vision, the Centre is today a leader in child and youth mental health, poised to respond to what is required to move the sector forward.

We look forward to where these new possibilities will take us in the years ahead.
