Community-based Mental Health Service hubs for Youth (Integrated Hubs)

PolicyWise for Children & Families is very pleased to share a second opportunity to support the implementation of Community-based Mental Health Service Hubs for Youth (Integrated Hubs) in Alberta. This opportunity is part of Valuing Mental Health.

Integrated Hubs aim to minimize the service gap between child and adult services by providing a youth-oriented ‘one-stop-shop’ for youth to access mental health care as early as possible. Integrated Hubs use a collaborative and integrated care model to improve service access and reduce the personal and public health costs of untreated youth mental health concerns. As Integrated Hubs are community-based, they will be flexible and adaptable to each community’s social, cultural, and health needs.

There are two funding streams available for communities:

  1. Capacity and Readiness
  2. Plan and Prepare

To learn more about the 2nd call for applications, please access the following webinar that was hosted on December 5, 2018.

Communities are only eligible to apply for one funding stream. The funding opportunities are described in furtheron the website.

Applications are due January 28, 2018, at 4:00 PM MST, to Naomi Parker at nparker@policywise.com
