Welcome to our growing lists of agencies, websites and resources related to children's mental health. Whenever possible we try to include Canadian and Ontario resources.

YoungMinds is a national charity (in the United Kingdom) that is committed to improving the mental health of all children and young people. They do this through giving advice, training, campaigning and distributing publications. Their website has a section for children, young people, and for parents. http://www.youngminds.org.uk/
YouThrive is a practical resource that was developed in a partnership involving Canadian Mental Health Association, Ontario (CMHA Ontario), Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Ontario Lung Association (OLA) and Ophea. It is for leaders in communities and schools across Ontario who work with youth aged 12 to 19. It is designed for people who want to create communities in which young people can thrive and develop capacity to realize their own abilities, make a contribution to society and learn how to take control of their own lives. It shows how using a health promotion approach supports positive mental health and prevents risk-taking behaviour among young people. http://youthrive.ca
