Our Research Goals

The Pathways to Care Project aims to remove barriers and improve access to mental health and addiction services for Black children, youth and their families in Ontario by making changes at the policy, community, and individual levels.

The goal of the project is to give us an opportunity to speak about the diversity of the Black community, and the different needs that exist with regard to mental health and addictions. Beyond that, the project aims to improve how mental healthcare is delivered to Black youth, children and their families.
