Lead Agency for Child & Youth Mental Health in Brant

Moving on Mental Health (MOMH) is an important part of Ontario’s Mental Health and Addictions Strategy. The plan ensures that children, youth, and families are able to get mental health services in their communities that are accessible, responsive, and meet their needs.

As the Lead Agency for Brant since 2015, Woodview is responsible for ensuring that core community-based child and youth mental health services are available in every service area and that the community-based sector works together so young people get the support they need.

We continue to work with our community partners, core service providers, and our committees on these important priorities and are excited by the level of engagement and commitment.

Key Responsibilities

The key responsibilities of lead agencies are to ensure that core community-based child and youth mental health services are available in every service area and the community-based sector works together with health care providers, schools, and other organizations so young people get the support they need.

Community Consultation

Woodview worked with the Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health (COE) and Parents for Children’s Mental Health (PCMH) to create surveys for youth and families and to facilitate two consultation sessions with families and four with youth. We worked with a Youth Advisor from the Centre of Excellence who trained youth facilitators to conduct the youth consultations across the community. Two reports were created as a result of the consultation sessions:
