What does the average child or youth in Canada want to know about mental health and how do they search for this information online? A synthesis report provides insight from three separate studies funded by the Mental Health Commission of Canada, including a literature review, a qualitative report, and a mixed methods report. Aimed at educators, health care providers, and decision-makers, the report’s key recommendations include:
- Create and identify high-quality child & youth-centric mental health knowledge online
- Develop a common language that will help improve mental health literacy online
- Create new and exciting opportunities to engage children and youth online
- Improve access to mental health information online
- Inform and build knowledge online in a way that supports the MHCC’s efforts to reduce stigma
EENet has developed a Research Report Round-up of the report “A Foundation for Online Knowledge Mobilization in Child and Youth Mental Health.”
Research Report Round-ups are brief summaries of research reports, presented in a user-friendly format.
You can read a summary of the report on the EENet website.
