Roadmap to Wellness: A Plan to Build Ontario’s Mental Health and Addictions System is the Ontario government’s plan to build a provincial system so that “all Ontarians have access to high-quality, easily accessible mental health and addictions support throughout their lifetime, where and when they need it.”

To support the Roadmap to Wellness, Child and Youth Mental Health (CYMH) Lead Agencies provide leadership and manage local planning efforts in Ontario’s 33 geographical service areas to move this system-building work forward for children, youth and families. EveryMind is the Lead Agency for the Peel service area.

At the provincial level, senior leaders of Ontario’s Lead Agencies, including EveryMind, work together in a Lead Agency Consortium to coordinate Lead Agencies’ efforts, advocate on behalf of Ontario’s CYMH service system, and collaborate with other service sectors to implement the Roadmap to Wellness and related system-transformation work.

Locally in our Lead Agency role, EveryMind works in partnership with Peel’s CYMH core service providers: Associated Youth Services of Peel, EveryMind, and the child and adolescent mental health clinics at Trillium Health Partners and William Osler Health System.

We engage youth and families in local system-building efforts. EveryMind also works with Peel’s adult mental health and addictions service providers, other healthcare providers, school boards, a broad range of community and social services, and governments.

EveryMind will share Peel’s Lead Agency progress reports and other documents related to CYMH system-building work on this page as they become available.
