Kids in Crisis Town Hall

The Kids in Crisis Town Hall was recently hosted by leaders and experts in children’s health, including child and youth mental health, from across Ontario. We heard from parents whose children have been deeply affected by the impacts of the pandemic, including loss of key services, postponed medical appointments, and loss of supports.
