Are you concerned about the current state of mental healthcare and access to care for Black children and young people in our community?
Pathways to Care is looking to speak with young Black people living in Ontario about how we can improve access to mental healthcare for Black young people. To do that, they will be hosting 2-hour (virtual) focus groups in Toronto with Black youth, including a focus group specifically for Black youth who have had experiences in the justice system (which can include incarceration, arrests and other experiences).
Pathways to Care aims to improve access to care and shift the way Black children and youth are served by organizations. They hope to do that by partnering with existing services and providing them with tools to help them better serve the needs of Black children and youth. They will also be providing resources on mental health directly to the community.
A paid honorarium is available for your time and knowledge. This research project has been reviewed by the Community Research Ethics Office [CREO #154].
