Early release article focuses on mental health services for Indigenous youth

An early release article published earlier this month in the Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry reports on a study conducted to identify mental health services in Canada that are available to Indigenous youth.

This study identified 117 programs in Canada, with the majority operated by non-profits and on-reserve organizations.  The findings of this study suggest that models incorporating a strength-based approach, lang-based programming, integration with other services, and involvement of community members without formal mental health training could reflect a holistic and culturally relevant approach to addressing mental health needs for Indigenous youth.
