Kids best helped by comprehensive mental health strategies

October 5, 2020

World Mental Health Day occurs Oct. 10. To mark this important day, the Children’s Health Policy Centre notes that comprehensive public health strategy is the most effective way to address children’s mental health in BC and in Canada. This strategy includes addressing social determinants, promoting healthy development for all children, preventing disorders in children at risk, providing effective treatments for all children with disorders and monitoring population outcomes.
