Are you a child/youth, parent, or service provider that has experience with the mental health system in Atlantic Canada? We want to hear from you!

The Research Project

We are conducting research designed to develop a better understanding of the impact that mental health conditions have on children/youth, caregivers, service providers (e.g., health, education, social development), and society. We also aim to identify barriers to access and promising practices across the four Atlantic Canadian provinces (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and Newfoundland and Labrador). An Atlantic Advisory Board with members from each province is helping to guide the project. We will be speaking with children/youth, parents, and service providers in each province.


Project Goal

The goal of this project is to take a diverse and innovative approach to studying how services are provided to children and youth identified with any of the following five mental health conditions: anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorders, conduct disorder, and eating disorders. We intend to document and analyze how treatment is received across government and non-government sectors including Health, Education, Social Development.
