Mental Health for Care Providers

Mental Health resources intended to support children, youth, and resource families.

Adults Supporting Youth Mental Health

Caregivers are crucial supports to youth who are experiencing mental health challenges or mental illness. This section includes resources that are intended for caregivers supporting youth, as well as resources directed at youth themselves, to support their mental health and wellbeing. 

In addition to these resources, OACAS has launched Take5, an online space for children and youth in foster care, in group homes, or living away from their parents in Ontario. It was made with young people who have been in care. On Take5 you can find information for your age on things like: coping with stress, stuff about your identity and culture, relationships, and who to ask for help. You can also find activities, podcasts, videos and online events. Take5 is for children 6 to 12 and youth 13 and above.
