Patient Journeys Project

NOVA SCOTIA

We want to hear about child/youth, parent, and service provider experiences with mental health care in Nova Scotia.

 

Youth Recruitment

Has your life been touched by mental health challenges? Are you between 10 and 18 years old? Do you want to tell your story?

We are gathering stories from young people in PE, NB, NS, and NL who are making journeys through the mental health system. People don’t often have the chance to hear from children and youth on this topic. You will be given $30 to thank you for taking the time to participate in our research project.
