FREDERICTON (GNB) – A newly-formed youth mental health initiative called ACCESS NB was officially launched today at Government House. The launch was co-ordinated by the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate and Dr. Ashok Malla, of the Douglas Institute for Youth Mental Health at McGill University, the principal applicant for the national project.
ACCESS NB is being funded as part of a Canada-wide project, ACCESS, that won a national competition created by the Graham Boeckh Foundation and the Canadian Institute for Health Research. The $25 million grant was awarded to the group presenting the best ideas and capacity for transforming youth mental health services across the country over a span of five years.
