The Ontario Centre of Excellence for Child and Youth Mental Health (the Centre) is working with youth, families, researchers, service providers and leaders to set the bar for engagement across the province by developing quality standards for youth and family engagement in Ontario’s child and youth mental health sector.

Quality standards are concise sets of statements that outline what quality processes and services look like. These evidence-informed standards will benefit youth and families by helping you to make engagement processes better and more consistent across the province. We are looking for your feedback to inform both the youth engagement quality standard and the family engagement quality standard.

Youth engagement is defined as empowering youth as valuable partners in child and youth mental health to address and make decisions that affect them personally and/or that they believe to be important. Family engagement is defined as an ongoing process that includes families as active decision-makers and equal partners in service delivery at the individual, organizational and system levels.

As service providers, you are the main audience for these standards, so your input is essential. By completing this survey, you will help define excellence for the family and youth engagement standards.  

This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The data we collect will be used along with information from other sources (e.g. focus group discussions, evidence from literature) to guide the development of the youth and family engagement standards. Your answers will remain anonymous, confidential and will not be identified in any summaries and reports. As a token of our appreciation, we would like to offer you the option of entering for a draw to win a $25 gift card. More information on how to enter the draw will be provided upon completion of the survey.
