Our aim is to transform the mental healthcare system in Canada. The Foundation fosters a variety of projects that are intended to work in complementary ways to achieve the overall goal of transforming mental healthcare and ultimately improving the quality of life of patients and their families, in Canada and beyond.
Transforming Mental Healthcare and Related Services
We collaborate with governments and other philanthropic foundations to catalyze the transformation of mental health services and galvanize a national movement for Integrated Youth Services (IYS). These initiatives help young people access the support and treatment they need and want.
We back projects to ensure that youth aged 12 to 25 and their families can receive a variety of high-quality core services, including mental health, primary care, addictions counselling, peer support and other social services delivered at accessible points of care.
Fostering Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange
We believe that working together is the best way to improve outcomes for patients and families. That’s why we support projects that focus on partnership between funders and stakeholders, and enable knowledge to be shared nationally and globally.
From the beginning, we have supported projects that deepen understanding of the root causes of mental illness, generate new knowledge, change services, and ultimately improve mental health outcomes.
