Yesterday, the federal government announced funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada totaling more than $5 million to support “three projects in Ontario that aim to improve mental health among children and youth in low-income families in urban, rural and Aboriginal communities. This funding covers both Phase I and Phase II of a $27 million national funding announcement by the Government of Canada. Through the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Innovation Strategy, this funding seeks to improve the mental health of vulnerable populations in communities across Canada.”

The Hincks-Dellcrest Centre in Toronto is receiving more than $2.6 million for its training program, Handle With Care, for parents and child care workers. Across Boundaries, a mental health centre in Toronto, is receiving a total of $580,709 for a youth project.
