Let's get active for youth mental health

It’s no secret that on the heels of the pandemic, our kids are suffering with the lingering effects of disruption and isolation that have led to high rates of anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions.

RVH is home to the region’s only Child and Youth Mental Health program. Families from Barrie to Collingwood and Midland to Muskoka rely on RVH to provide this vital, lifesaving care for their children in crisis.

Last year, 16% of all paediatric admissions to our health centre were for children and youth needing mental health care. Crisis assessments in the Emergency Department have been steadily on the rise since the beginning of the pandemic. More kids are needing more care and they need it here, close to where they live and close to the support of family and friends.

It has never been more important to focus on the mental health of our youth to ensure our kids have the support they need to live long, healthy, fulfilling lives. That’s why we’re participating in the 2023 RBC Race for the Kids.

Please join us as we raise funds to help us grow RVH and expand access to lifesaving mental health care for all the children in our region and the families who love them.

Together, we can do this!

Thank you from us and all the RBC Race for the Kids participants and charities!
