Youth Engagement Initiative

The Youth Engagement Initiative team comprises several Youth Engagement Facilitators and a Youth Engagement Coordinator, and is based in the Margaret and Wallace McCain Centre for Child, Youth & Family Mental Health at CAMH. The Youth Engagement Facilitators bring their perspective as youth with lived experience into research and program activities related to youth mental health and substance use.

The Youth Engagement Initiative team’s goal is to increase meaningful collaboration between youth stakeholders and professionals by providing the youth voice at all levels of projects and organizations. The facilitators also engage in conversations with other youth with lived experience in order to provide more diverse perspectives, including co-leading the activities of the National Youth Action Council.
